“I was lucky enough to attend a similar event run by the Communications Council in the early stages of my career in Account Management. The advice that I was given by the Mentors really helped me make sense of the sometimes daunting world of advertising, plus it was heaps of fun!.”- Spencer Ratliff, Youngbloods
