A GINormous THANK YOU

For the Support

…and love at our conference and careers fair last week. We truly couldn’t have done it without the Brilliant Team, volunteers and companies that supported us. So big thanks to Helen Farmer for managing the event with us, Susie King for her continuous support and attention to (every) detail. Our brilliant speakers who gave up their time: Anna-maria Wykes, Helen Lloyd, Kathryn Armitstead, Ben Byford, Elena Hersinger, Joanne Kitson and the wonderful UWE staff.

The companies also for coming along and engaging with the women so wonderfully – the attendees all came out of the room beaming with appreciation from how you engaged with them so you certainly won some support and a big thanks for supporting us!

A list of them and their current openings, we will keep live in appreciation on the career fair sponsors page.

The feedback from the day has been wonderful, so depite the stress of running our first large event since COVID began we are really pleased and hope that it drives some people to consider a career in the industry and to consider roles with the companies that attended.

It is time to reimagine marketing with mobile leading the charge. To that end, the MMA, with input from leading brands, launched the industry’s positioning promise: Nothing Brings You Closer to the Consumer.
