COVID-19 continues to create disruption globally in advertising, media, and marketing, resulting in large numbers of layoffs and furloughs.

It’s rarely simple to move from one role to another, even less so in the current climate. At the same time, companies are looking to rebuild for the future and new ways to care for their people.

Earlier this summer Grace Blue, the executive search firm, brilliantly launched TRANSITION, a complimentary online platform for displaced talent to find practical and inspirational content, a network of industry peers and access to potential job opportunities. Supported by over 30 global organisations, brands and trade associations – the idea is genius. And we have signed up as partners.

Suki brings together in this session Emily Somers, former CMO at McDonald's and Domino's; and Helen Duffy, Managing Partner of Grace Blue who oversees their TRANSITION programme, to discover how to connect exceptional out of work talent to agencies and brands directly. And, how companies are rethinking the future and caring for their talent.

The discussion focuses on:
 
• Real life examples of how the industry is supporting people in troubled times
• How to transition out of roles and set up for success in the next career change
• Insights for organisations fortunately still hiring and those looking to rebuild the future
• What’s next from our industry?
