Participants were put through their paces in a program designed to provide a practical understanding of the industry and agency life.

Involving a credentials pitch for a fictitious agency, the winners of the one day workshop were Team JWT Evelina Gruszka, Kirstyn Light and Verity Moule, mentored by JWT's Account Director Prue Tehan.

Hopefully there was a workshop on being retrenched to meet shareholder profitability targets. Something many of the participants will need to be aware of these days if they join any of the larger shops around town.
