1.    Prior to being chosen to participate in this program, what did you know or hear about the LIA Creative LIAisons program?
I had heard from a couple of creatives who went last year that it’s perfectly tailored for junior creatives. I also heard from those creatives who sat in on the statue discussions, that the awards judging is brutal. Can’t effing wait!
2.    What do you expect to get out of Creative LIAisons? What do you want to get out of Creative LIAisons?
I expect to be overwhelmed with information, but for the important info to stick. I want to learn from the experts (and the amateurs) what they think is good.
3.    If you were to choose what the speakers present, what topics would you choose?
‘How to disagree with your CD’ and ‘Sip the ad-flavoured Kool-Aid – but don’t drink the whole cup’.
4.    If you could choose any juror to interview for two minutes, who would it be and why?
I’d love a big old existential yarn with Larissa Kirschner-Chaney about ethics in advertising. It’s something I (and a lot of other creatives) struggle with and she seems really tuned-in on the topic. The tough bit would be keeping it to 2 minutes.
