I had the opportunity to go to Next Generation Day yesterday for FFWD Advertising & Marketing week! It was a great day meeting fellow students and industry professionals. Certain industry professionals such as Michelle de Clair (Cossette), Jill Nykoliation (Juniper Park) and John Pace (One Advertising) really stood out in the panel which was moderated by Julian Brass, founder of Notable.ca. During the Q&A I couldn’t help but think over and over again that I just have to work for people like that! After the Q&A Burke Moody to the stage from AICE and showed us some amazing work done over the past year.
The rest of the day was spent at One where we got to meet people from the account, creative and media departments. It was awesome to see an actual brief they used for a chocolate milk campaign and to brainstorm ideas with creatives.
