Holiday Reflection/Planning Ahead
In my last newsletter I wrote about the myriad career possiblities for strategic problem solvers.There are many ex-agency planners I could cite as examples who set up their own business, moved to a consultancy or have taken a dream job on the client-side. Trajectory and success varies, but you don't ever fail by consciously assessing your circumstances and concluding that your effectivenss and sanity require you pursue not simply a job, but a reinvention or calling. This is a perfect time of the year to reflect and get inspired, with that in mind:
A shout out to those that seek to inspire others, both within and outside advertising, a few of them listed below.
'How not to plan.' Les Binet
'Strategy is your words.' Mark Pollard
'The art of inspiring anybody.' Michael Fanuele -
'The art and science of modern account planning.' - Leslie Bielby
'The creative curve.' Allen Gannett -
'The obstacle is the way.' Ryan Holiday - I think is a great read for all problem-solvers.)
'Discovering Hope' Stuart Parkin - Yours truly, on positivity.
All the best,
