After Creative LIAisons:


It was an honour to attend Creative LIAisons this year. I gained so much practical knowledge that I’m already using in my work, and I met some incredible creatives from all over the world. I think, for me, meeting those other creatives was the best part about LIAisons. I loved being exposed to different ways of working, different problems, and work that I probably wouldn’t see in my own market. Thanks for having me and for all your hard work! We all had a blast.


Before Creative LIAisons:


1. Prior to being chosen to participate in this program, what did you know or hear about the LIA Creative LIAisons program?

My Creative Director had told me about Creative LIAisons and said it was a week (or so) of learning, networking and mingling with other creatives from around the world. That’s about all I knew!


2. What do you expect to get out of Creative LIAisons? What do you want to get out of Creative LIAisons?

I expect to be really inspired by the people I meet at Creative LIAisons. I’m hoping to make new friends, to learn more about what creatives are doing in other markets and to get new ideas for our clients back home.  


3. Who from the LIA Juries would you most like to meet/speak with? (https://www.liaawards.com/juries/jury/)

I’d love to meet Suyin Sleeman, a fellow Australian and Copywriter! Her journey in the industry has been really inspiring and I would be interested in learning more about it.
