Super 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.

Looks like they’ll be back…

I'll be back south west

I’ll be Back South West

June 2019’s I’ll Be Back South West is going to be a colourful summer riot of knowledge and wisdom. In the usual convivial fun-filled style that you’ve come to know and love. And we’re back at the coolest club in town: THE SQUARE CLUB.

It’s a monthly meet-up for people interested in the impact of artificial intelligence/machine learning/technology on the creative process in the ad industry. Each month we have three/four/five guest speakers from brands, startups, agencies and academia to share their perspective on creative AI.

If you’re having troubled thoughts like ‘Is that machine text generator better than me’ or ‘I wonder if I’ll lose my job to a robot?’ or ‘What the hell is a GAN anyway?’, then this is definitely the event for you. You will receive the gift of new, exciting information planted in your brain, and leave excited and inspired about the future.
