Merlee Jayme recently took on the joint Global President role at the newly badged dentsumcgarrybowen network. In this video presentation (featured on the London International Awards website) Jayme says the current crisis has made her believe that looking ahead is the right time to recharge, restart and re-package yourself.
Uncertain times provide an uncertain future. With a world of furloughs and lay-offs, the advertising and digital creative community was definitely hit big time. Lockdown however, has been a moment of realization for many creatives. There’s the discovery of “Me time” and family on a brighter side, but there’s also the downside: getting big demands with limited inspiration, or worse, asked to stop reporting due to less work demands.
One may ask, how do I stay relevant in the business?
How do I keep up and stay in demand- what new skills do I need to learn?
It’s the right time to Recharge. Restart.
