What did APG Young Planners think about the event?
"Best APG event I've ever attended. Really helpful to hear what the experts have to say on the things that really matter to me and that I can't ask at work."
"I had an amazing evening! I got to have the undivided attention and pick the brains of CSO’s and Head of planning from some of the best agencies in the UK. Each of them were open and really took the time to think of answers to the questions I asked. They gave me actionable advice that I am already implementing move forwarding, I can’t stress how beneficial it was for me as a young planner to be able to get varied advice from such knowledgeable planners. As if that wasn’t enough, I got to connect with 11 other young planners! It was great to be spending the evening with like-minded people who have similar ambitions and could relate to my situation. By the end of the evening and we were all filing out of the nearby pub, not only was I armed with a notebook of notes but I also few pages of contacts and a place in a community of ambitious young planners."
"If you’re reading this and haven’t attended an event at the APG before, sign up to the emailing list and make sure you apply as soon as they announce Speed Mentoring Part 3!"
“As planners, one of the things we all value is to have the opportunity to discuss and debate our thoughts and ideas with like-minded individuals. As a young planner, one of the things I value most is to have the opportunity to discuss said thoughts and ideas with the very best in the industry. The recent APG speed mentoring event was no short of a perfect mix between the two. It gave us newbies to the industry the opportunity to rub shoulders with six of the best, most experienced strategists and to discuss whatever we wished! How often do you get that opportunity? A big thanks to the APG for putting the event on and for giving those new to the industry the best chance of getting their foot firmly in the door.”
