What is the secret for a successful career in the world of digital media? What degree should you take? How do you stay on top in this fast-moving environment?
These questions and many more were addressed by the discussion panel of UCL alumni as they spoke and during the following Q & A sessions, the event being chaired by Professor Claire Warwick (@clhw1) from the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities.
From a personal angle, I wanted to learn more about the paths taken by panel members to reach the positions that they now hold.
From the perspective of my role as UCL’s Head of Publications and Marketing Services (PAMS), I wanted to know:
1) Were the UCL degrees taken by each of the panel members integral to their success?
2) Where did panel members see digital media heading next?
3) How does an organisation cope with the fast-changing developments in digital marketing?
