DAN WILKINS - CO FOUNDER - VTWO

When I look back, I was a classic “not sure what I wanted to do” twenty-something, or maybe “I know what I want but don’t know how to get there” twenty-something. I always enjoyed selling things to people, and I was more interested in how to get their attention and keep it, than how do I sell this quickly.

MICK BRADLEY – COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR – MEDIA33

I did work experience at Mitchell & Partners in 2004 and was lucky enough to make a few contacts there which led to me being employed full time. I worked across APIA, Renault, MINI and finally settled in working on the ANZ business back when there were only 5 or 6 people across the whole biz.

After that I moved to Mediacom and worked on CUB (Carlton Draught, Carlton Dry and Fat Yak) which was a lot of fun and was where I really learned the importance of branding/building ongoing connections with your audience.

STEPHEN FISHER - GENERAL MANAGER - HATCHED MEDIA

I began my career in media about 20 years ago in a small independent agency in London where I did a couple of years “apprenticeship”.  I worked with some amazing people and specifically had two mentors who continue to impact and affect my career.  In 2003 I moved to Australia and got a job at Initiative.  We only had a couple of clients, but they included Bunnings and JB Hi Fi which were about to go through a decade of amazing growth.

EMILY MANLEY - SENIOR HR CONSULTANT - CALIBRE300

I finished my degree and found myself in a recruitment agency trying to get my first job out of uni when that same recruitment agency offered me a role to work with them.  Not knowing much about being a Recruitment Consultant, I took it on and found I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the fact that I was given a desk and the white pages and told to make 100 new business calls a week!

PATRICK GALLAGHER – DIRECTOR - CALIBRE300

As a kid leaving school I never really had a particular desire to work in a certain field. From Jackarooing up in the Northern Territory, to selling construction products in Melbourne, to selling surfing gear in Sydney, my early years were very broad. All that was important to me at the time was to have as much fun as possible and learn whatever it was that I needed to along the way.

The entire audio on demand sector, with podcasting set to take off in the Australian market. This sector will move beyond just being about ‘catch-up’ radio and more into the premium content space, similar to Netflix. Digital radio will continue to penetrate our market as it will be in all new cars, and music streaming (Spotify/Pandora) will also continue to grow.

JACK BYRNE - MANAGING DIRECTOR - HATCHED MEDIA

I have always hired on attitude first, and talent second. Being a small start-up, it has always been important that from employee no. 1 onwards, everyone was willing to roll up their sleeves to get the job done, while also having respect for others and care for their own output, which is an attitude I hope to continue no matter what our size.
