“Choose where you work. Choose your Ogilvy.”
On the 19th of May, we had the honour of hosting our last speaker of the term-Mrs Annette King, CEO of Ogilvy & Mather UK. She has been with Ogilvy for over 16 years in 8 different roles, ranging from client lead on American Express across EMEA to Managing Director for Ogilvy Interactive and New Business Director for OgilvyOne. Ogilvy operates in ten different, but connected companies in London in order to integrate their services for clients. In her insightful speech, Annette had a few stories to tell us, each relating to a piece of advice she has for students planning to enter the corporate world in the future.
Finally, Annette also talked about the launch of Ogilvy’s new intern selection process which allows applicants to submit absolutely anything creative before finally selecting 14 interns to intern with Ogilvy for a period of 6 months. Her passion and love for the job was evident all throughout her inspiring and humorous speech. She firmly believes that she ‘chose her Ogilvy’ and would love to see more women being brave in choosing theirs as well.
