Walking into an agency unannounced
Second year advertising student, Stephanie Bradshaw shares her story of just walking into a London advertising agency without a meeting.
After standing outside a London advertising agency for ten minutes, I finally plucked up the courage to just walk in. Prior to this brave move, I thought of every excuse in the book to not to.
I checked my Twitter, I don't know why, I thought it would give me motivation to go in. FutureRising's daily tip "you have something that agencies want, talent" was staring at me, burning into my brain. Why did I follow them on Twitter, I thought. There's no hiding from the motivation. I remembered Jim Compton-Hall's lecture (at Bournemouth University) about how agencies don't mind you walking in, so I just did it.
