The 2016 Advertising Industry/Student forum was a great success. Not only did the event sell out but we connected with an engaged online audience through our live stream on Facebook. You can now view the digital video recordings here. Additionally a small photo gallery is viewable here.
Dr Nicole Hartley and I as Co-Chairs would officially like to thank all participants without whose generous support the event would not exist! Their input on graduate career transition and progression provided great insight for soon to be graduating students. That’s a significant advantage for those motivated, passionate Advertising Creatives/Executives of the future.
So thankyou Shachar Meron, and Melinda Geertz for your keynotes.
Thankyou 'Executives + Grads'; David Dahan, Gareth Nicholls, Hannah Spilva, Nicole Sherwin, Sarah Guyer and Cale Valkenburg.
Thankyou 'HR Executives + Grads'; Adam O'Connor, Kim Lion, Kate Rengey and Rachel Kertes.
We would also very much like to thank our core sponsors, namely Swinburne University and UQ Business School. Sincere thanks in particular also go to The Communications Council (Nici Henningsen and Suzy Leys). We would also like to thank the Media Federation of Australia, the IAB, Microsoft, and Mediascope for your time and consideration.
Finally and by no means least we would like to thank the Organising Committee/ Live Stream team including Amy Denyer, Michelle Butson, Montgomery Quaife-Ryan, Jonathan Lang and Yolan Berry.
We are looking at options to expand the forum in 2017 by possibly joining with new University partners. Hopefully a more expanded concept/program will emerge. Watch this space!
Myself, Melinda Geertz and Dr Nicole Hartley.
