Bloom Birmingham Launch: Diversity in the Creative Industries
Wed 9 November 2016, 18:00 – 20:30 GMT
Bloom, the network for women in communications, is launching in Birmingham! Bloom exists to help women in marketing and communications fulfil their potential through networking, mentoring and fundraising and is now opening a Birmingham chapter.
Join us for Birmingham’s first Bloom: Achieving Your Potential event on the theme of diversity in the creative industries.
How can people be creative in different ways? Diversity of thought is key to help make the industry a better place to work and produce better work for our clients and companies. This can include diversity in thought, experience and background. Everyone has something new to bring to the table.
Our panel of speakers will include:
- Matt Andrews - Creative Technologist, BBC Digital Guerrillas
- Tricia Owen-Williams - Group Digital Manager, N-Power
- Kat Ellis - Associate Creative Director, ?What If! London
- Julia Willoughby - Chief Executive, WPR, Birmingham
All proceeds from ticket sales will go to our nominated charity, Women’s Aid.
Previous speakers at the ‘Achieving Your Potential’ events, have included: Charlene White, ITN newsreader; Jan Gooding, Group Brand Director at Aviva; Laura Jordan Bambach, Creative Partner at Mr President; David Wheldon, Head of Brand, Reputation, Citizenship and Marketing at Barclays Group; Steve Hatch, UK MD at Facebook and Claire Beale, Global Editor at Campaign.
