During the week of 2nd July 2017, EACA and edcom will welcome 70 advertising & commercial communications students and young professionals from across Europe to the EACA International Advertising Summer School in Vienna (Austria).
Participants will be following daily workshops by leading advertising professionals while working in international multidisciplinary teams. At the end of the week, they will present their campaigns to an external jury composed of client representatives and industry professionals.
New this year is a brand new programme with new topics, such as learning how to build the perfect Paid Social Media campaign (Dominika Dworak), discovering how to motivate yourself and be productive at work by mastering different brainstorming techniques and communications skills (Dalia Lourenço), and understanding different personality profiles to ensure a perfect cooperation and communications amongst different agency departments and clients (Elissa Telfer).
We will also be introducing a Specialisation Day: participants will be able to choose between two topics and follow an intensive and highly interactive workshop during one day with an expert in this area. A workshop on ‘Creative Storytelling’ will be given by San Francisco Miami Ad School lecturer John Delacruz, while the other workshop will be on ‘How to make content compelling for video in advertising’ by London based specialist Peter Rudge from Duckrabbit.
In addition to these new courses, participants will also be able to gain an understanding of client-agency relationships (Richard Robinson), discover the future of brands (Dietmar Dahmen), deliver the perfect pitch (Micky Denehy) and master their presentation skills (Siobhan Stanley).
