Date: Friday 19th November, 2010
Venue: Guiness Storehouse
Speakers: Patrick Collister and Lizzie Kinross
Lizzie Kinross: “After trying to find some inspiring training to go to as a copywriter,I decided to host my own workshop. I invited over an inspirational UK speaker, Patrick Collister and promoted the event across Irish adland with the help of ICAD who endorsed the event.
The day was a great success; Patrick gave us loads of inspirational examples, tools and ideas for creating great copy, and I presented for an hour on copywriting for social media. We we had about 25 attendees and lots of great ideas for the Dublin Simon community, who provided a live charity brief for us to work on during the day.”
