In this episode, we discuss advertising and working with the best creatives. Our guest is no other than Sandra Bold, Cannes Lions Jury member and Digital Creative Director at Publicis Milan. Sandra Bold is far from the typical path of working on a traditional career path, having graduated in architecture and deciding to work with ads instead to showcase the talent that lies within her.
Sandra Bold joins Femme Lead Podcast to discuss her path, challenges, and what does it mean to work in the creative industries. A typical 9 to 5 is not what you'll find here, and Sandra doesn't shy away from mentioning the industry's hardships, from working long hours to striving to be the best at your craft.
Sandra Bold started her ad career in Bucharest, Romania where she quickly grew from junior to senior positions. During her career, she kept on winning awards to make her parents less pissed off about her dropping architecture. Among the awards, you will find Cannes Lions, Eurobest, One show, Golden drum, and titles like Copywriter of the year (2016), Top 6 creatives to watch (2017), Pitch 100 Superwomen (2018).
