So, I’m a creative and advertising agencies have people hired to ‘protect’ clients from us and our often rather odd ways of thinking. So, when I was told I was to have a mentoring session with the Marketing Director of Energizer UK, Elizabeth McGregor, I was naturally nervous. But (like everyone’s mentoring sessions) it was pretty awesome. Apart from the fact Elizabeth is just a top person, she gave me some great advice about not only dealing with clients and how she’d rather her agency creatives be ‘weird’. But generally she gave me advice on how to work with other people.
Anyway, I just thought I’d quickly share a piece of advice that we can all put into practice right away. It’s about presenting and it’s the best piece of day-to-day advice that Elizabeth has for us all. I filmed it, so you can have a break from reading (apologies for the shaky camera work).
