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.
