In celebration of World Youth Skills Day, FutureBrand Group is offering young people aged 16 – 21 years old the opportunity to have a 1-2-1 meeting with members of its C-suite globally.
The global initiative will allow young people interested in pursuing a career across the branding or design sectors the chance to book 30-minute meetings with some of the most influential members across various departments throughout the multiple FutureBrand global offices. These meetings will allow young people to ask the kind of questions that can help shape their futures, whether in the design sector or elsewhere.
The initiative unites the entire global FutureBrand family including offices in London, New York, São Paulo, and Milan alongside UXUS and Hugo & Cat. Those participating in the initiative work across a multitude of sectors including strategy, design, accounts, creative and marketing and include the likes of Jon Tipple, Global Chief Strategy Officer; Doriane Naufle, Creative Director of FutureBrand Paris; Simon Bent, Global Chief Financial Officer, and George Gottl, Chief Creative Officer of UXUS.
Alongside these sessions, FutureBrand has released a specially commissioned video for World Youth Skills day that asks those offering their time questions, the answers to which, would have benefited themselves at the start of their careers. The video aims to show young people that everyone starts somewhere and that it’s okay to not be sure of where to go next or how to get there.
“Here at FutureBrand we are always looking to do what we can to inspire and educate the next generation, across not only our industry but also those industries that our work inevitably intersects,” commented Nick Sykes, Global CEO at FutureBrand. “It has become increasingly apparent that nurturing those taking the first steps of their careers is of the utmost importance.
“By looking inwards and reflecting on our own journeys and the lessons we have learned along the way, everyone across the FutureBrand family hopes that we can help young people tackle those first crucial challenges of not only deciding the area they might want to pursue but also how best to approach doing so.”
