Exclusive, and single-mindedly focused on the work and those who create it.
Creative LIAisons' Mission Statement
To develop, educate, inspire and grow young creative talent, coaching them to their full potential. The goal of this program is to give young creatives from around the globe, access to learn from some of the most experienced people working in our industry and related industries. This game-changing training academy is a powerful springboard for the next generation of talent. LIA created the exclusive and sought after Creative LIAisons program in 2012 as a way of giving back to the industry that supports us.
Coaches will conduct personal virtual sessions, of an hour each, with three different young creatives. They will cover all disciplines from creative, to strategy, to account management, etc. with emphasis on skill development, how to work and navigate in these virtual times, and how to establish future directions to meet the ever-shifting demands of the global work environment.
LIAisons On-Site Series
LIAisons features seminars, panel discussions and interactive workshops. As Creative LIAisons runs concurrently with LIA on-site Judging, attendees receive one-on-one mentoring from many of the jurors. LIA is the only show that allows attendees unlimited access to the jury and the invaluable experience to sit in on statue discussions as they occur in real-time.
“You have the thing. Keep at it.” Those were the words that were spoken by Thomas Edison to Henry Ford that inspired Ford to build automobiles. It had always been a dream of Henry Ford to meet Thomas Edison. During an event, Edison had a conversation with Ford about the Quadricycle, the first automobile that Ford had designed. Henry Ford has singled out that meeting with Edison as an important inspiration for his career.
Conversations can move ideas and careers forward. So after a year of embracing the virtual space, Creative LIAisons welcomes a select group of attendees back to Las Vegas to engage in round-table conversations with the top creatives whose work they admire.
With travel restrictions still in place for many countries globally, Creative LIAisons will be open to 35-40 attendees from North America. With a smaller group, attendees will have ample opportunities to meet, mingle and learn from their personal interactions around the table as well as from the jurors. As usual, attendees will be invited to sit in on statue discussions of several different juries and be privy to the insights and viewpoints that are expressed in those rooms.
