The DMA in the West, Wales and Midlands
25 Oct 2018
This month’s top news…
An inspiring line-up of speakers has been confirmed for this year’s Fresh Blood event on the evening of Tuesday 6 November at Prophecy Unlimited’s Bristol offices.
For the fourth successive year, we’ll be opening the doors to the next generation of marketers and for a second year combining the event with the DMA’s Big Book Crit.
The theme is marketing and technology and with the help of Kerve Creative, Proctor and Stevenson, Indicia and Scribeless we’ll be showcasing the very latest innovations and also taking a look at what the job opportunities of the future might be.

Also, our recent neurodiversity workshop which took place at Zone Digital’s Bristol offices was a great success. In addition to attracting a broad range of organisations, the event was also attended by an autistic 17-year-old aspiring copywriter who completed a few days of work experience with the agency during the summer. She impressed us and the team at Zone Digital so much that we invited her and her mother to participate in the discussion and explain the challenges faced by job seekers with autism and their parents.
The DMA continues to make good progress in addressing these challenges and also in encouraging our industry to become more neurodiverse. To read more about this important initiative click on https://dma.org.uk/article/dma-talent-neurodiversity-initiative-1
