How does it work?
The programme is divided into eight hour-long modules, each is lead by a professional at the top of their game: from award-winning creative directors to CEOs from the world’s biggest agencies. These are the people who know exactly what it takes to create stand-out work.
Two modules are presented each morning, and throughout the week participants work in groups alongside a mentor to answer a real-life brief set by a global brand, before presenting their response on the final day. It’s a collaborative experience and a chance to learn with people from a host of different job backgrounds, company types and countries.
At the end of the five days, Gold, Silver or Bronze prizes will be awarded by the jury. The winning team will collect with trophy onstage during the Awards Show.
Who is it for?
A total of 48 people take part in the programme and they come from agencies, brands, technology companies or work within marketing communications. They all have at least seven years’ experience of working within creative communications.
