Under the Influence

Advertising Alumni

This week, for the final episode of our 2018 Summer Season, we look at famous people who began their careers in advertising. Many of the people who have gone on to shape popular culture, cut their teeth in the world of marketing. From Dr. Seuss, Salman Rushdie and Bob Newhart, to Sir Alec Guinness - yes, Obi-Wan Kenobi himself - they all spent their formative years writing copy. Each learned some valuable skills on their way to the top. And their stories are remarkable. We hope you enjoyed our mini encore series. See you back here in January.
