BIMA’s Digital Dinger

The last two years have been a funny old time in the industry, especially for those starting their career. New starters in digital and tech have experienced a brand new way of working without really seeing what it was like ‘before’, and everything from company culture, career pathways, and client relationships, to innovation and the use of technology, have changed forever.

As we start to move on and work out what the future of the industry looks like, we wanted those who have not experienced the ‘classic’ agency life to get some insight into the industry they’re now part of with BIMA’s Digital Dinger series.

An ongoing series of social events designed to get you meeting new people whilst learning from some industry veterans, each event will be a mix of those on the start of their digital career journey and those who are ready to guide the next generation.

Each month we’ll invite different guest speakers to talk through their career journeys so far and share real case studies of their digital successes (dingers, if you will) and the not-so-successful twists and turns that they learned from.

At our second Digital Dinger event we’ll be joined by Kian Bakhtari of The People, who will be sharing his most important lessons learnt, the tips he wishes he’d had at the start of his digital journeys, and getting under the hood of some of his favourite projects.

Come along, it’s free for BIMA Members and the first drink is on us if you are in your first 3 years of your career!
