@CD1 I have not. Just admiring from afar 😆. I’m not even sure what I would say to her, other than marvel at her long standing and constant flow of brilliance that has made her a force in the industry right from the start of her career. Which I’m sure just makes her feel awkward, bc what do you say to that other than “thank you”.

Very different comment, but can I please ask how all you creative directors got to where you are?! It would be a dream!

Hahaha love this!! Any tips as to how I can do the same? What sort of job would I need to be involved in? I’m currently a marketing executive and editor but would love to be doing something more creative in the fashion/creative industry!

A type or creative leadership… but Whitney Wolfe Herd and Elaine Welteroth!

Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with patronising managers?

It's been going on for weeks now where they don't explain things they need from me properly (they make it seem very small and simple then change the ask later), they give my male counterpart better opportunities and briefs, they grill me on how exactly I spend my time daily.

I know it's not the end of the world but it's causing me stress and work crying which I never did before.

I don’t want this kind of thing to set me back.

What to do when you leave the small pond?

I've spent the last decade getting really good at whatever job I've had at the time. Doing what people told me to do, filling in gaps, being the cheerleader that everyone got along with.

Problem now is that I'm finally in a place where I can set my own path and I feel totally lost and unprepared. I've even looked for advice on SMART goals at my level but the shame/inadequacy/imposter syndrome is so strong.

Anyone else felt this way? What helped?

Question for both agency and brand-side women- how much do you normally spend or charge on production? Background- I’m now brand side (formerly agency) and our media is under $10million in working dollars plus fees, but we spend nearly $5million on production and creatives services and fees. This was shocking to me, our agency typically scopes our creative fees and production as less than 20% of cost of working media dollars on the HIGH end. Perspective?
