Adversiting offices tend to be a bit out of the ordinary. Jeans, pizza lunches, dogs running around and meetings rooms riddled with exercise balls... it's all part of agency life. So, when all the Client Services girls came dressed in leopard print as a joke on a fellow co-worker, BAM Strategy Account Coordinator Nick Henderson thought of it as a the perfect moment to share a picture relating the quirkiness of BAM.
Proving that everyone at BAM Strategy is a social media expert, Henderson entered the pic in the Advertising Week Social Club (AWSC)'s monthly Pinterest contest "A Day in the Life of Advertising". Garnering the most likes, comments and repins of all the submissions sent that month, Henderson ended up being selected as that month's winner and got the chance to attend the Advertising Week conference in NYC!
"Since joining BAM in 2011, Nick has helped us to continually increase our social media presence," said BAM Strategy Vice President and Managing Director Lonn Shulkin. Together with a colleague, Henderson manages BAM's social media presence, including the Pinterest page, Twitter and Facebook. "His prize to attend Ad Week in New York not only validates his efforts, but also allows us to continue to learn and evolve our best practices from other industry leaders in one of the world's premier advertising conferences."
The prize from Advertising Week Social Club included entry into Advertising Week's conference from October 1st to 5th and BAM Strategy sponsored all additional expenses, including airfare.
"Helping send Nick to Advertising Week was a no brainer. We want to reward our employees for their passion, initiative and drive, which in the end help us better serve our clients and contribute to our dynamic work environment," said Natalie Ferand, Director of Client Services.
Advertising Week features seminars, lectures and special events with the industry's worldwide leaders. Henderson attended sessions on such topics as The Google Mobile Marketing Block, Connecting Through Interests to Build Real-Time Brand and Leadership in the Digital Era.
"Advertising Week was an amazing experience! I was able to meet new people in the industry and to soak up an extraordinary amount of knowledge and information," Henderson said. "This will be an unforgettable experience for me and I thank BAM once again for making it happen."
And you can be sure that Henderson will be sharing the photos from his week in NYC through social media...
