WoW’s Annual Creative Planning Meeting

Nicola Docking talks to University of Liverpool

Our Head of Strategy Nicola Docking, was asked to be on the panel for an online event organised by the University of Liverpool Management School for their recent graduates called ‘Getting Ahead in Marketing’.

Nicola covered topics such as experience of working for an agency vs in-house and the key differences and pros and cons of each; What an average working day looks like; what skills recent graduates starting out in marketing need to develop and how relevant her degree has been to her marketing career.

It was great to get the opportunity to speak to such a great bunch of graduates who had lots of great questions and many of which are already gathering experience and applying for marketing roles.
