Originally hailing from London, I landed my first job in marketing and advertising in the late 80’s. My career began in the London Advertising playground, where a little wet behind the ears, I joined my fellow alumnae and entered the big agency world of JWT, Saatchi’s, Ogilvy, Collett Dickenson Pearce et al.

Copy and design were tested, and brands were given personalities’ and positioned as the customers ‘friend’ – and I was immersed in it all! It was an incredible way to cut my teeth in the industry.

Well, it’s not exactly an ad campaign, but I am quite intrigued by the ‘Coca-Cola 2020 content strategy.’ The video sets out the strategic vision for the future illustrating that Coca-Cola’s marketing future rests on the ideals of content marketing. The video states that Coca- Cola must work towards earning a disproportionate share of popular culture through telling stories and provoking conversations through ‘liquid and linked content.’
I need some new music!! Any suggestions welcomed…Right now I am listening to Flume.
