Crowd: The Next Generation!

Anja and Jack from Crowd at Digital Wave 2018

The Digital Wave event returned for a fourth annual year on October 2nd 2018 and Crowd were there to talk to and encourage the next generation of young marketeers.

The event, which is held at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) shines a light on all the degree, college, apprenticeship and career opportunities on offer in the UK’s most exciting industry in the UK’s fastest growing digital hub!

Students from around the Bournemouth area heard from acclaimed speakers who shared their experiences and important tips on how to succeed in the digital industry.

Digital Wave was free for people under the age of 19 and the event really encouraged young people to take an active interest in what it means to be in marketing, in whatever facet that maybe i.e. social media, design, development.

This year we had a very special prize for one innovative student – we set them a task to come up with a logo, brand name and ‘trendy’ hashtag for a gourmet food company based in Bournemouth, with the winner earning an internship at Crowd HQ, where they would learn more about the main aspects of what we do and also to gain some much valued industry experience.

We look forward to welcoming a very talented young marketing prospect to the Crowd team in the near future and thank you to Digital Wave for inviting us to take part – we are already looking forward to next year’s event!
