Sophie Cole from OMD said, “I’m excited to hear from a diverse mix of media professionals on how young people in the industry can best set themselves up for an inspiring and dynamic career in media.

“With so many topics across the 10 lesson program, I look forward to re-evaluating some of my hard skills in areas such as Sales & Negotiation Skills while in parallel developing my soft skills in areas such as Inspiring Creativity and Leadership/Management Mindset.

“I also look forward to workshopping with other young people in media to challenge one another and learn from our unique experiences in the industry so far.”

“There is a big focus on nailing the processes and systems in your first couple years of media.

“This program encourages young people in the industry to pause, take a step back and think more openly about who they want to be in their career, how they want to lead, what they want to be known for by their clients and peers and master their media craft,” Cole added.
