30 seconds with an AWEurope volunteer

We chatted to Mellissa Potts who is volunteering at Advertising Week Europe, to get the insider view what it’s like helping out behind-the-scenes.

Why did you volunteer for Advertising Week?

I thought it would be a great opportunity to network with the best in the business and it would be something unique for my CV.

Where are you from and what’s your background?

I am originally from Lincoln, but moved to London three years ago to study advertising at the University of West London

What are you doing?

Mainly administration and registration stuff, but also general helping out.

What talks are you hoping to see?

Ben Shaw from BBH is giving a talk, and BBH is one of my favourite agencies so fingers crossed I will be able to sneak in. There are so many talks that I’d be happy to get into most of them, especially since they are free for volunteers!

Are you interested in working in advertising?

I can’t wait to start working in advertising. I’m just about to graduate and I’m looking for work in advertising and social media.
