Following a year at #1, Publicis kicks off 2024 with the One-to-One Wishes, powered by AI

Groupe creates 100,000 personal ‘thank you’ films for every member of its team

After a year where Publicis achieved a lot of firsts - first on organic growth, first on all financial KPIs, first on new business, first on ESG, to become first in the industry in terms of market value – as always, we wanted to put our people first, and thank them one by one, for helping us to secure the #1 spot in 2023. 

So we are kicking off 2024 not with one New Year’s Wish film, but 100,000 of them. One for every member of the Publicis team.

In a first of its kind experiment in pushing the boundaries of AI video, storytelling and personalization at scale, Arthur’s usual New Year’s message to the group takes an unusual turn when he’s joined by his AI twin, the AI Directoire+ and AI Maurice.

Thanks to our ability to gather and connect information about our people through our platform Marcel, everyone that works at Publicis and who has contributed to our growth and success, is being sent a personalized thank you that is relevant to their interests and passions. Along the way, Carla, Dave, Agathe, Nigel and even Maurice seem to have picked some surprising new skills.

To see how the One-to-One Wishes match the right language, the right leader, and the right interests, to the right person, across 100,000 films, here are 5 examples:
