M&C Saatchi has launched a free online series to help junior and mid-level industry professionals enhance their careers and tackle the challenges of the coronavirus crisis.

Redundancies have hit hard across a lot of industries, and the advertising industry hasn’t been spared. According to online classified site SEEK, job ads for the advertising sector are down 60% April compared to March.

The M&C Saatchi Inspire - Growth Sessions is a seven-part program of actionable insights to guide tomorrow’s leaders to long-term career success. 

Speakers include Bohemia Group general manager Sev Griffiths, Re: global CEO, Patrick Guerrera.

“We’ve got an incredibly diverse mix of people within our business, so it’s been brilliant to see how many of them want to get involved and help anyone who has been displaced during the last few months, or simply looking for a change.” says Justin Graham, group CEO M&C Saatchi said.

“Now is a tough time for many, but what it does enable is a focus on self that we are not often allowed, Sev has pulled together a great panel of industry leaders to kick off the Sessions next week so I encourage people to jump in on Thursday - or on any of the sessions following.”

Sev Griffith  will be hosting a panel of talented and experienced people who have demonstrated individual strength, passion and resilience.

Panelists include Natalie Harvey, network sales director, Network 7, Kate Richardson executive coach and mentor and Ellie Rogers Facebook agency director, ANZ.

They will discuss their personal experience around reinvention, and the challenges they’ve faced by switching gears and tackling new career paths.

The program will be hosted on Zoom and is open to anyone who wishes to join. There will be a chance for attendees to ask questions directly to the speaker throughout each presentation.
