Industry Talk – Week 1

Today, Global Creative Director, Stephan Roux, gave a presentation to our group about networking and connections within the advertising industry.

Some advice Stephan gave us was to take the first job within the field that we can get, no matter how small the role is. We must squeeze through any door we can to get the vital experience we need in that professional environment. Also, he said, “be humble” and “ask questions”- we must not be afraid to pursue any answers we need in order to grow.

Stephan described his time working in China, and how working in another country gives you perspective on how different cultures drive advertising. This experience has helped him grow.

This talk has given me a change of mind, I never considered working abroad before. I now believe that I could leave my comfort zone if the opportunity came along and better myself. It would be a great challenge.
