What’s the biggest change that you see coming up with traditional media and digital media over the next 12 months?
Speed is really really important. I think that’s going to be even more important for us over the next 18 months than it’s ever been before. You have to be out there first, early and relevant, but you also have got to make sure it’s right. You can’t send out elements of garbage right? You’ve got to be right.
What is a piece of advice that you would give to someone who is now starting in the industry?
I think if I’ve learned anything over the last couple of years is that you can start out with seven or eight creative ideas in your head that you think are fantastic, but you have got to focus and be really good at what you do. Hone in your attention and skillset.
