Event description

Description

Taking inspiration from heroes Eve & Gwen Stefani, ‘Let me blow your mind’ will teach you how to capture what makes you distinctively different and present it in a way to blow people’s mind. That’s right, it’s time for you to stop describing yourself as ‘hard-working’ and ‘friendly’ and really get under the skin of what you stand for and why people should care.

At f*ck being humble, it pains us to see great talent go unnoticed, that’s why we need to start throwing away those generic personal bios, factual portfolios and cover letters that are going nowhere but the junk folder. People buy people, but only if you let your true personality shine through. So whether you’re in the market for a new role, or just want to polish up on your personal brand, we want to help you with practical tips, useful learnings and a networking environment that enables you to spread your word.

During the evening you’ll learn how to:

  • Craft a personal bio that people won’t forget

  • Curate a CV and portfolio that sells your benefits not just features

  • Cut through email spam with a cover letter worth reading

  • Build a consistent brand presence

  • Tailor your content per channel


Following the talk, there will be an 'In Interview with' segment with the incredibly talented Melissa Kitty Jarram where we'll take a deep dive into her success and journey through the industry.

Melissa Kitty Jarram is a South East London based illustrator and artist, who graduated with a BA in illustration and animation from Kingston University in 2014. Being half Chinese and half English, she spent the first 7 years of her life in Xi’an, before moving to Nottingham and eventually London for university. She creates both digital images and paintings depicting surreal and dreamy scenes, often with a central female figure. It’s a style which, despite sitting in the realms of fine art, has attracted the attention of clients such as WePresent, Nike and Bandai Entertainments.
