Amazon Advertising by Pearson and Olson

Lynda Pearson and Millie Olson – ‘Amazon women’ – started Amazon Advertising in 1996, based in San Francisco. Their portfolio includes advertising for Canon, Girl Scouts of America and Procter and Gamble. They tell us that women make or influence 80 % of consumer decisions. Here’s a rare company that offers the insights of female directors into advertising with wit, truth and optimism.
