IPG Agencies Come Together to Form First British Chapter, with the Launch of WLN London

More than 100 IPG employees gathered at Momentum’s HQ in Southwark for the launch event on September 19th with guest speaker Nicola Mendelsohn, first female President of the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising, the UK media industry’s professional body.

The session began with Nicola sharing “what I wish I’d known when I was 20” which led into a colourful discussion between the panel and the floor – covering  topics ranging from whether quotas should be introduced as a means of speeding the path to the c-suite for women, to whether sexism in business still exists at all.

The panel was comprised of :

  • Maria Anderson – Head of UK Talent, Momentum
  • Eve Samuel-Camps – Group Business Director/Head of Press, UM
  • Liz Jarvis – Group Head of Production, R/GA
  • Tony Regan – Chief Strategy Officer, Initiative
  • Chris Marjoram – Managing Director, Rapport

The event even garnered some press coverage.
