War Of The Words

12 Dec 2011 - Paul Mann

 

Last week, the lovely Lea Galmiche, who is a wonderful new talent here on our planning team, took to the mic and braved the stage in front of some of adlands major bigwigs at the Campaign War of the Words 2011.

Not only is Lea less than a year into her career but only started learning to speak English in February last year, so she took the award for super courage before she even opened her mouth.  Those of us that attended the event left buzzing with ideas and a real sense of awe at the young talent that wowed the room during the open mic session.  And Lea, for her part, spoke passionately and eloquently with many thought provoking ideas. She touched upon why the ad industry needs to start getting ready for her generation because they are coming to take the agency world by storm with new skills and ideas that will transform the way we work. You can see more about the talk and the winners at Brand Republic.
