Kieran Child, Art Director at Table19 shares some advice about pitching your ideas in the advertising industry.

A creative pitch is the ultimate test you face as a young creative. There is no better way to prove your ability or creative brawn than by landing a big chunk of business for your agency.

Too often young creatives shy away from the big, scary pitch meetings in the belief that the more senior creatives will blow them out of the water. But never shy away from an opportunity that allows you to go up against the big hitters. When it comes to a pitch, throw respect for your elders out the window and show them why they should respect you. Tip: if you’re not invited, get hold of the brief and do it anyway!
