Laura Brown, a newcomer to the advertising industry won the Miami ad School Account Planning Boot Camp 2015 ‘Top Dog’ Award.

The Account Planning Boot Camp, held in Australia for the first time this year, attracted students working in creative, account service and planning interested in deepening their strategic skills.

Sydney School director Helga Diamond said: “The Miami Ad School boot camp is tough, especially for the Students who hold down demanding day jobs. The planners did extremely well in writing creative briefs and developing campaigns in partnership with our creative Students. It will prove to be a worthwhile time investment. We ask ‘boot campers’ to give us 12 weeks and in return we give them a good chance to hold senior positions in two to four years.

“Laura earned the top dog award because of the speed she absorbed knowledge that was new to her. Coming from behind, she displayed huge amounts of energy and passion for a new discipline and came up come up with thoughtful insights, strategies and ideas.”

Brown said: “I always knew that transitioning from client-side to agency was  going to be a challenge, but the Boot Camp offered  an avenue to fast track my skill set. The most valuable element of the course was the weekend session series with 10 different industry heroes. It was great to learn from strategists at the top of their game and have the chance to put theory into practice. It’s also been invaluable to have these industry contacts as they’ve been very helpful with career counseling throughout the entire Boot Camp.

“Everyone in the course came from a different background, and altogether we brought a combined 35 years of experience in creative, planning and account services. It meant for great team dynamics and it was interesting to see how we all approached problem solving in different ways.”

Miami Ad School is accepting applications now for the winter quarter:
