The classes are attended by people from the advertising, PR, marketing and creative industries and tend to generate good links for covering the industry. There will of course be a number of repeats, but that should'nt be a problem.
Back in July last year I was part of the team that gave a Master Class for the Widen+Kennedy. We asked them to map out some of the things they thought the future would bring, things that would have an impact on the advertising industry. This is what they had to say:
Our area is in the process of having the water pipes upgraded. We got a note through the door and a notice posted in the entry about not having any water today and tomorrow from 09.00 to 15.00. But its cold here in Stockholm at the moment. Minus 22 last night. And we still have water. Maybe it is too cold to dig. Maybe the plumbers have to deal with leaks. Who knows. And that's where localized twitter accounts could help. If they had started a twitter feed for the renovation project they could pop out a quick update on the water situation and we wouldn't have to wonder. Wouldnt have to ring and clog up the switchboard. Would get timely info from the people who actually know whats going on: the plumbers. It will happen. Just wish it would happen sooner.
