AEF Presents Giant Ideas on How to Make it in Advertising

In collaboration with:


Advertising was once a major magnet for young people. Somewhere along the way we became very 'professional' and perhaps remote. Sitting on this stage will be a panel of 5 successful advertising legends who are the very embodiment of our business. They had no silver spoon or father in the business. They did it the old-fashioned way: intelligence, wit and a little show biz.

Brought to you by the Advertising Educational Foundation (AEF), this discussion will center on how these giants got into the business and what the industry should be doing today to make itself more attractive to the best and brightest young people.
