Seamus Higgins

With 18 years experience across three continents, Seamus is currently Executive Creative Director at Host/Havas, Sydney, Australia. 

Over the last two years he has helped lead a creative resurgence that saw them win Agency of the Year at the 2018 Australian AWARD Awards, and ranked no.1 in Australia, and no.7 globally in the Cannes Lions 2018 Global Creativity Report.

Along the way he has created and lead campaigns, including the Palau Pledge, that have picked up nine D&AD pencils, including a coveted black pencil, and three Cannes Lions Grand Prix, including Titanium.

Seamus has also lead the Defence Force Recruiting account, one of Australia's largest, with 2017 seeing them achieve the most successful year in their history, and winning a Grand Effie in 2018.

Seamus’ inspiration lies in creating ideas that have the power to change things, and over the years he’s developed an unhealthy obsession with the craft of their delivery.
