Piyush Pandey, Executive Chairman and Creative Director, South Asia - Ogilvy & Mather has called for more ‘young ideas’ as he urged young people to be patient and not give up in case they are rejected at first in the advertising world.
“My message to them is - you are as creative as any of us who have made some kind of a name. If you don’t win today, doesn’t matter, it is not that you are not good, you could be very good. We were all rejected in seven jobs before we got one, so you are very good and the world has expectations of you. Don’t give up,” he said.
Pandey was speaking to exchange4media at the Portfolio Night 12 event that saw 75 young creative aspirants meet and get their portfolios reviewed by the top creative minds in the country. The event was hosted in Mumbai by Lowe Lintas & Partners.
“We must try and get a little more innovative so that we could include people from more parts of the country than just the metros or maybe just Mumbai,” he added.
