Head of advertising at Macleay, Ian Thomson, said the continuing success of AdSpeaks is testament to the quality of speakers the series draws.

“AdSpeaks is a high-value experience that allows our students to engage with advertising industry leaders,” he said. “The knowledge they impart gives students a real inside view to where the industry is heading, and how they can be a part of it.”
