Marketing/PR: Brand ambassadors and their reputation promoters redefining what it means to work client side.
Media Agency: No longer just buyers, these young guns are putting the message back into the medium.
Media: Billboards, newspapers, magazines, television and radio. Oh, yes! And that little thing called online as well. Content kings today and tomorrow.
Specialist: Okay you just can’t fit everybody into five buckets anymore. From experiential to content marketing to events and shopper marketing and everything in between. Surprise us!
B&T’s editor in chief David Hovenden said: “B&T’s 30 Under 30 is something we’re really proud to get behind and the huge interest from the industry is testament to it.
“Celebrating and recognising our industry’s next generation is something that’s very important to us and we urge all the ‘young guns’ out there with the raw talent and the determination to get involved. Or, if you’ve got some stellar youngsters in your team then nominate them too.
“Then there’s the actual awards night! I think anyone who attended last year’s event would hopefully attest it was one of the parties of the year and we certainly plan to go one better this time around!”
