99% Perspiration vs. Juice Festival

Hello, Creatives!  Usually on 99% Perspiration, we’re interviewing other creative professionals to find out what advice they have in store for emerging creatives, and what skills/knowledge they can offer us.  And I must say, it’s nice, and really rather surreal, to have the tables turned.

Both our guests on this week’s episode studied creative degrees at university, before pursuing creative careers with media companies based in London.

Alicia Myers is currently the Insight Executive for BBC Worldwide.  Alicia’s role involves leading a research team in a creative way; turning figures and facts into stories, to help BBC Worldwide sell their programmes worldwide.

But when we chatted a few weeks ago, she was about to enter her final week in the same role at Time Inc. UK, the magazine publisher behind InStyle, NME, Wallpaper, What’s On TV, and a handful of other well-loved magazines.

Alicia shares with us how she finds creativity, how to develop a thick skin, and why PR and research roles can be ideal if you love storytelling.

And until next time,

Stay productive, stay awesome!
