What did I miss?
After an introduction from our host Steph, Freddy shared his pep talk with us: “Your point of view is unique – so use it to your advantage. The best ideas come when the room is filled with a whole host of people with different backgrounds, different views and different insights.”
He explained that, when you‘re first starting out in the creative industry, it can feel like your opinion matters less than that of others – but this is far from the truth, and your unique standpoint can actually put you at an advantage.
Freddy then jumped right in to answer all your questions about working in advertising, introducing us to the different types of roles that exist within the industry, providing encouraging words on whether to build a portfolio from scratch (his answer: yes, you absolutely should!) and sharing where he derives his own inspiration.
