Cream of Dallas Ad Agencies – Moving Brands Forward

Last week I got to go to Chicago for HOW Design Live for my “Employee Enrichment Program.” What is that you ask? Well, every two years that you work for greatest agency, greenlight, you get to pick a conference you would like to attend and they send you! This conference not only brought in people from everywhere around the world but also from all different positions in the creative world. I learned so much from all the speakers, so I couldn’t wait to get back and share with the team! Today, I thought I would share some of my favorite pieces of advice I gathered:

  1. Don’t be afraid to be weird
  2. Don’t confuse fear with discomfort
  3. Be the expert in the room
  4. Fall in love with the process
  5. Believe in your flyness, conquer your shyness
  6. Make Things, Inspire People and Create Change
  7. Live Purposely (not purposefully), Live Generously and Live Intentionally
  8. If you’re playing it safe, you’re not playing at all
  9. Keep bringing your ideas to the table even when the “big guys” aren’t asking for them
  10. Critique is at the core of collaboration

What am I going to start applying to myself today? Definitely believing in my flyness, conquering my shyness and falling in love with the process. I hope at least one of these pieces of advice inspires you and that you will share with your own team!
