It’s the other side of the job (developing talent), it’s fun, and the more I teach the more I learn. Always.
There’s really never been a better more exciting time to be in experiential marketing – my particular area of the biz. People really value the opportunity to interact with people and brands in ways that connect them to each other and allow them to geek out over whatever it is they have in common. We now have such incredible technologies that allow us to promote experiences, amplify them, and continue the conversation long after everyone goes home.
Find your people.
Because diversity is the wellspring of ideas – divergent thinking, perspectives, lived experiences, all of it helps to shape new and innovative ideas.
I get to play with people I love and respect, and they challenge me to keep pushing my own thinking.
Same advice I got – find your people. When you are in an environment and industry that both builds on your strengths, and challenges you in a way you find exhilarating (and not demeaning), you tend to thrive.
