Emma Thurley

Why did you get involved with the IAA ELC?
“The industry has undergone a huge cultural change as a result of the pandemic which to me feels like its more difficult for people joining to feel part of a community and network. I wanted to join the committee to help new joiners acclimatize to the advertising industry in the ever changing world.”

What’s the best thing about the ELC?
“The amount of different types of people you get to meet. Especially with working from home sometimes you can get very focused on your clients and your team, being part of the ELC means you’re meeting people from different agencies, clients and publishers.”

What advice would you give to someone wanting to join the committee?
“Get involved as much as you can, making friends within the industry is not only really fun but also great for your career.”

How are you finding your time on the committee?
“Really great! I have spoken to a lot of new people and I am excited for upcoming events.”

Fun fact about yourself!
“My family name has been in my hometown since the 11th century.”
