Talk at Bristol Grammar School Careers Conference

Yesterday Synergy were invited to talk about careers in the Creative Industry at Bristol Grammar School’s annual Careers Conference.

Mel and Chris went along to talk to two groups of Year 10 students about the roles of Account Management and Design in a creative agency such as ours.

Also in attendance were professionals from industries including architecture, the army, engineering, law, medicine, police and wildlife film-making! Students we spoke to seemed keen, but didn’t want to commit to telling us if they’d choose a career in the creative industry just yet. Hopefully we did a good job at persuading them it was a rewarding and varied career to work in, and, if everyone that took one of Mel’s business cards applies for work experience, we’ll need to get a bigger studio!

Just the day after, we’ve already had some fantastic feedback from a couple of the students that attended our talk:

“I am just emailing you to say thank you very much for your talk you gave today, I found it very interesting and I would love to explore marketing in more depth. It certainly something I would like to pursue and I would really like to thank you for giving me this opportunity.”

“I was inspired to find out more about Graphic Design and Marketing. I have a keen enthusiasm in art, graphic design and advertising in particular.”
