No matter how hard you work, the road to success is never straightforward. If you want to make it in the creative industry, you’ll need to not only get used to being rejected (a lot), but work out how to harness short-term set backs and transform those soul-crushing “didn’t get the job” moments into life lessons.
On Friday 9 June, 700 people from across the creative industry joined us at London’s Royal Geographical Society for Here 2017. Our sixth annual symposium celebrated creativity in myriad forms, from the inspiring talks to the fun activities, and left us – and hopefully everyone else – excited and full of ideas. We’ll be sharing stories, images and films from the event over the coming days, but in the meantime we’ve plucked out some standout learnings from the brilliant day.
