May / AGDA NSW / First Five Out

What were you doing five years ago? Maybe you were rebranding Optus?* Maybe you hadn’t even started studying yet. For our speakers, they were fresh graduates about to step out into the world of design. Today, they’re some of the most interesting creatives in the industry. But are they the creatives they thought they would be when they graduated? Have they stayed on track, or have they taken a different path? What were the pivotal moments in their career that have lead them to where they are today, and what has or hasn’t gone to plan?

AGDA invites you to hear from Phil Tibballs (Never Sit Still), Elle Williams (Freelance, Formerly M35 & Mark Gowing Studio), Owen Cutbush (Fox Sports), and Kate Torta (Saatchi&Saatchi) as they share stories from their first five years out in the industry, and their unique paths through the creative industry. If you’re a student or recent graduate asking yourself ‘What’s next?’, this is a perfect opportunity to hear from people who’ve done it all before.

There will an opportunity after the talks to ask a question of any of the four speakers. If you have a burning question - ask them via #agdanew on twitter before or during the event. Afterwards, hang back for a drink and take the opportunity to mingle with people in the industry, find your way through the maze.

*yes, that was five years ago!
