We love sharing our knowledge with students and junior creatives, and have organised and held several talks over the past months.

Looking for enthusiastic speakers with endless energy and lots of insider knowledge on how to go from desperate student to creatives in their dream job? Pop us an email at bonninsmidt@gmail.com. 

Here are some pictures of talks we've done.

Young Creative Council

22 October 2019

Every junior creative out there knows the feeling: you’re working on a project, trying to come up with genius ideas, but everything you scamp up just seem quite shit. You compare all this to the award-winning work of industry legends and think: how will I ever be as good as them? 

We organised a talk, From Shit to Shit-Hot, where inspiring creatives Scarlett Montanaro, Stu Outhwaite-Noel, Jo Wallace, and Jose Miguel Sokoloff explained that even they had to start somewhere back in the day, and that it’s completely normal to feel like you’re shit once in a while. It’s the talk we wish we attended when we were desperately looking for a job. Around 100 young creatives showed up to the MullenLowe office for the 3-hour event. It was such a success that we're already planning our next shit event :)

New Blood Academy 2019

23 July 2019

We were asked to be speakers at this year's D&AD Academy. We gave a 40-minute talk called "World domination 101" where we shared all our little tips on how to get an internship, and eventually a job as Advertising Creatives. 

Edinburgh Napier University

20 May 2019

We took over Napier's MSc Creative Advertising class for a day, giving them a live brief to brainstorm on and telling them all about our experience. They were all exhausted after 5 hours of an intense crash course and listening to our rambles, but we got great feedback, and will be doing another talk to the new cohort next year!
