AdAge did a recent article about 25 people within advertising/media that you should follow. Trouble was they’re US people.
Got me thinking – who are the 25 people in AU in the same industries that are interesting? It also was an easy post to do on a Sunday night whilst watching the Pies demolish Port Adelaide.
What’s the criteria? Hrm – is there ever really a ‘criteria’ for these things. It’s sort of a subjective mix of people you like, admire, respect etc … who post interesting things, thoughts about their own job or the industry or even better, things unrelated to work.
Disclaimer – this list is purely my opinion and designed to let you know about interesting people you might not be following. Plus I couldn’t think of 25 so narrowed it down to 15
