Everyone has their own path in life, and I often find myself wondering what led them down that path.
What made them choose that specific career ?
Why do they think that way?
Who do they look up to?
How did they first discover that interest?
As you are aware, or could probably guess, I have a passion for advertising. There is so much about the industry that I admire. There are so many people within the industry that keep me motivated, interested, and inspired, and that is what this post is all about.
People who challenge the norm and don’t give up on their dreams or their beliefs.
People who make me drop what I am doing, shut up, and listen.
There is no proper path that one must follow to receive a spot on my list, and there is no specific style that I look for. The only thing that I do look for is passion.
Here are a few passionate folks that I have never stopped looking up to (I hope they inspire you too):
The mastermind behind Ogilvy & Mather
Tham Kai Meng
Co-Chairman & Worldwide Chief Creative Officer at Ogilvy & Mather
Everything that comes out of this man’s mouth is creative GOLD.
Chairmain, TBWA/Media Arts Lab
Director of Media Arts, TBWA\Worldwide
CEO of BBDO Worldwide
Best selling author
All of these people are icons–and I don’t use that term lightly–yet they have different perspectives. Can you guess what they share? Passion. They all have a passion for what they do.
Note: These are not my videos (obviously). They were found on YouTube (of course).
