Everyone knows that we bang on about the impact our industry could potentially have on changing the world if only it put its mind to it! So, we are thrilled that on July 4th the IPA in association with the Young Creative Council kindly agreed to host an event for Creative Conscience Award winners in the hallowed halls of Grosvenor Square. The event brought together some young inspirational creatives already in adland to talk to winners about the opportunities and pathways into advertising and were able to hear about the passion and capability young talented people have for doing good and pursuing rewarding careers.
YCC’s Charlotte Kushi said: It was a great event to be part of, and all the work Creative Concience and the IPA are doing is great. I & the YCC are really passionate about inspiring the next generation so let us know if there’s anything else to get involved with.
Attendees were also impressed and informed:
“I didn’t realise the ad industry was ‘good’ and put on events like this just to help young people out.”
“There are so many more routes into a job than I thought, and it’s ok to be me.”
“I didn’t know much about advertising. It’s quite exciting.” (from a young children’s book illustrator)
“Advertising is so much more diverse than I thought.”
