No Fixed Address debuts mentorship program
No Fixed Address of Toronto has begun a new mentorship initiative called No Fixed Agency aimed at professionals in the marketing industry. Participants can sign up at <http://www.nofixedagency.com> for an online consultation with a variety of senior industry personnel. Mentors from a number of agencies will take part, including No Fixed Address president Jordan Doucette and chief creative officer Josh Budd, as well as Erica Ehm of Ehm & Co, Mark Delottinville of Big Pig Production and Stuart Thursby of Stack Creative, among others. They will be available for portfolio reviews, mental health check-ins and career advice related to media, public relations, content production, strategy and related subjects.
“NFA saw this as an important time to step up and give back to the advertising industry, the same way it's given us the ability to keep operating for three years,” said agency CEO Dave LaFond. “We’ve been floored by the support from industry friends offering to become mentors, and the response from people taking this opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s brightest. We’re very fortunate to be in a place where we’re able to lend a hand for as long as there is interest and a need. Anyone looking to work in advertising deserves our support. We’re all here for each other.”
