Yesterday, with the help of APN Outdoor, MediaCom and General Assembly, we held our inaugural B&T Bootcamp at The Portside Centre in Sydney, where a group of stellar industry mentors and keynote speakers shared their words of wisdom to eager attendees.
One of those attendees was OMD account director Sarah Kramer, who has kindly summarised her key takeaways from the bootcamp through song, just like Baz Luhrmann’s “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)”.
