Curtin Advertising Class outfield trip with Jason Tan Strongerhead Sept 2013

In Sept 2013, we had two career outfield trips with our Ad391 (Campaign Development) class to gather insights into their career development.

On 5 Sept, it was a trip to Mindshare Singapore (part of the largest media global network). It was like a mini reunion as I got to meet up with a few of my ex-advertising students who are currently working at Mindshare Singapore (Deanson, Rachel, and Sylvia). They have definitely made me proud to be once their lecturer. On this trip, Deanson, Rachel, Sylvia and some of the folks at Mindshare (Social Media Marketer, Search Specialist and a few other Media Managers and Directors) joined the session to share with our Sept 2013 Ad 391 students tips on how to get themselves career ready.

On 10 Sept 2013, week after we visited Mindshare, we had another outfield trip to meet Gerald, a young inspiring entrepreneur and a great friend of mine. His speech and sharing session definitely rocked our students dearly. Probably motivated many to walk the path of greatness as he did.

I wish to also share with you the key take away from these two sessions. I had handpicked two of the students summary report from the two sessions for your reading pleasure. Thanks to my wonderful students, Regan, Ivy and Li Ning of Ad 391 for their summary.

Cheers to a great career ahead in 2014.
