One Awards in NYC.

Our NextTECHnow team took home Silver for the Partnership Category at this year’s Starcom Mediavest’s annual ONE Awards – held in New York this time!

Here’s a wrap up video, by one of the NextTECHnow UK partners Seenit! 

Are you a Diagonal Thinker?

The Diagonal Thinking Self-assessment is an online tool, designed to aid recruitment into the advertising and communication industries. It tests the hypothesis that the most successful individuals working in the business are both Linear and Lateral Thinkers – they think ‘diagonally’. The test is associated with the IPA – Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (primarily in the UK). You can try out the test as well at: http://www.diagonalthinking.co.uk. It takes under 2-hours and hopefully won’t rattle your head too  much. I took it today and was diagnosed as a Diagonal Thinker… GASP! I am now on my way to more graduate schemes and positions in the marketing and advertising field. The adventure in applying continues… To infinite and beyond! If you’re a potential employer…. click to see the results from my Diagonal Thinking Test. (You can also click on the link if your name is Sally and you’re curious.)
