So you might have heard that B&T’s coveted 30 Under 30 Awards are back, but this year we’re launching one heck of a day event to go with it.
Similar to the Women in Media forum we launched last year, 2017 is the year we launch a daytime mentoring and collaboration event called Towards 2030, with speed mentoring in the morning and a workshop to create the ideal agency in the afternoon.
We figured you’d all have some FAQs about the whole event, so we’ve pre-empted them and shared them here:
Q: So what’s all this ‘Towards 2030’ stuff about?
The inaugural Towards 2030 Forum is a natural extension of B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards.
It offers attendees the chance to take part in speed mentoring with some of the top powerhouses from across the marketing, media and advertising industries, and to gain up-close exposure to highly successful, inspiring people in said industries.
In order to facilitate cross-agency and business collaboration, the afternoon will be a hackathon, where groups are challenged to create a winning agency for the year 2030.
Attendees will benefit from the rich pool of ideas on how agencies and media companies can respond to increasing disruption to take back to their respective agencies and companies, and will walk away with valuable sources of information to help them make the most of their career and reach their full potential.
Q: What’s the schedule like for Towards 2030?
The day event schedule will look a little like this *subject to change if B&T staff decide they need more time to do their hair*:
- 8:00-8:45am – arrivals and registration (Ivy Ballroom)
- 8:45-8:50 – welcome remarks
- 8:50-9:10am – keynote address
Speed mentoring (8 mentors, 20 minutes each)
- 9:15-12:10pm – speed mentoring
- 12:10-12:55pm – lunch
Create your ideal agency of the future (8 groups of 20 attendees each, each group lead by 2 table captains)
- 12:55-2:25pm – collaborative brainstorming
- 2:25-2:40pm – afternoon tea
- 2:45-4:45pm – presentation from each team (10 minutes each to present, five minutes for Q&A).
Table captains form the judging panel, giving a score out of 100 for each team, but they cannot score their own team.
Q: Can I score a sweet deal if I go to both events?
Why certainly, eager beavers! There’s a whole range of packages, from single and double event tickets, to discounts for larger groups. See them all here.
