Young Leadership Group
Posted 14 July 2015.
The Comms Council Young Leadership Group, under the guidance of Marlen Smith, Comms Council Industry Development Manager, have identified an essential need for the industry - to connect with and support new talent in order to ‘future proof’ the industry.
The First Five Rungs is their project arm, under which the YLG members have committed their personal time, resource and support of one another to create initiatives to demonstrate how valued ‘newbies’ are to the advertising industry.
The YLG’s mission is:
“To engage, challenge and inspire the brightest young talent - the future of the advertising world.”
