Get Creative Careers aims to help young people access the creative industries via insider knowledge and video.

Rob Jones  - who is the driving force behind Get Creative Careers -  worked with me during Shepton Digital Arts Festivals.  Shepton Digi Fest also aimed to create links and opportunities between new talent and the Creative Industries.

Rob has created a number of short films with creative industry people, including Aardman Animations.

I was asked to talk about marketing – to give a first look at what marketing is and how a young person might like to approach finding out more about embarking on a marketing career.

You can view the film below.

My video was shown to a class of 12 and 13 year olds and this is what they said:

“I thought marketing was about making adverts.”

“She makes it sound quite cool.”

“My mum does marketing but this sounds more interesting than what she does.”
