AdGuy @ AdWeek NYC


Well it seems like forever that I updated, and yes it has been.

New school year started and I have a very exciting new freshman group... you energetic future AdLanders and a grad class that has plans to make change and "Change the Rules".

Next week I will be traveling with a group of 53 students to Advertising Week in New York City and I will be reporting I hope everyday on the experience that will not help them learn but more important gain the insights on how they will find their way in this crazy business.

On top of all the great sessions that are part of Adweek, I ahve arranged for several private agency tours at BBDO with Jack Neary (formerly of BBDO Toronto), Atmosphere/Proxinity, Taxi NYC, Droga5, Vice Magazine/Virtue Branding/VBSTV and a visit with Scott Goodson of StrawberryFrog. These private lectures will I am sure will be outstanding.

To top things of I will also host for them "A Day with George Lois". I can't begin to tell you how excited I am personally to meet and chat with Mr. Lois, but the opportunity of spending time with truly one of the original MadMen of Madison Avenue.

Stay tuned. It will exciting.

There have been many things to take away from our trip to NYC's Advertising Week; I feel one of the biggest things I got from this was a bit more confidence in our chances of getting into any one of these great agencies. I say "our" because I am talking about anyone under the Left+Right brand - certainly because I know that we know Droga5 is not a type of dog out in jersey...*cough*

It's been rewarding Anthony. Thanks!
