NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- On the night before the recent Association of National Advertisers' Brand Innovation Forum, Ad Age invited the ANA CEO and top marketing officers from Home Depot, JetBlue, Clorox and Wells Fargo to a private dinner and roundtable discussion at Django in Midtown Manhattan. In the relaxed atmosphere of that French-Mediterranean restaurant, the group spent two hours mulling over the issues of corporate innovation, the role of ad agencies in the creation of new products, and the use of large work forces as instruments of a daily marketing operation. Hosted by Ad Age "CMO Strategy" section editor Jennifer Rooney, this eight-minute audio-visual production captures the essence of that gathering.
