Industry Conversations

Industry Conversations include the voices of advertising practitioners among all of the other educational materials that AEF already provides to teachers and students. Here you will find a series of videos from advertising pros of yesterday, today and tomorrow – leaders from agencies, client marketing teams and media companies.

The advertising industry is undergoing revolutionary changes at a technological pace unprecedented in human history. Industry Conversations will seek to find and share the voices that can speak to advertising’s future as well as its immediate past.
