I was chosen to attend to Creative Conversations for Young Creatives organized by London International Awards in Las Vegas. Represented my network DDB as a young creative. (2012) 

''Four years ago, LIA decided that one of the best ways to give back to the industry was to create a mentoring programme fully funded by LIA called ‘Creative Conversations.’  We have since renamed ‘Creative Conversations’ to Creative LIAisons.  This programme runs concurrently with the LIA Judging. For LIA, it wasn’t enough just to honour the best work globally; we wanted to help build a new generation of young creatives who would bring creativity to the next level.  That was the beginning.  Now this programme has become one of the most respected and sought after educational initiatives in the industry.''
