Q&A with Sarah Watson

Why do you work in advertising? (Sorry not meant to be a flippant question — would genuinely love to hear you talk about why you’ve chosen to give so much of your life to this industry).

I never found my voice until I worked in advertising. It’s a terrible thing not to feel you have a voice. Now I work in advertising to help other people find their voices and to help brands do the same. It’s all the same thing.

I’m going to start here coz it’s a brilliant question and one I ask myself frequently! Also it will be a big theme across all my answers.

I like to think about stuff and do interesting stuff. Advertising pays me to do so.

@sarah totally feeling ur post. I used to be so quiet until I came into advertising. Now I have to defend good ideas in front of non-creative ppl. This industry isn’t for a shy person.
