Cheil Worldwide Nurtures Young Talent



Cheil Worldwide continues to team up with the Spikes Asia to run the Spikes Asia Creative Academy, offering a unique learning opportunity for a select group of students from across Asia Pacific. This year, 15 students from 11 countries are gathering to immerse themselves in an exclusive course including dedicated tutorials from renowned industry figures.


Aimed at nurturing young advertising talents, the Academy's three-day programme is tailored to the needs of its students, including exclusive lectures and master-classes from the region’s leaders. Students will also participate in the Spikes Asia official programme, acquiring first-hand insight into the creative advertising and communications industry which they will take part in the future.


Commenting on their Spikes Academy sponsorship, Daiki Lim, President and CEO of Cheil Worldwide says, “As a global player, Cheil Worldwide has been committed to nurturing regional young talents through the Spikes Asia Creative Academy over the past five years. In the advertising industry, talent is the best asset, so I am excited and committed to continuing this Creative Academy programme”.


“Spikes Asia is very much committed to cultivating young talent by improving their knowledge and skills that will help them in their future careers. As such, we are delighted to team up with Cheil Worldwide again to provide such an outstanding learning platform – the Spikes Asia Creative Academy – where a group of students from around Asia Pacific can be immersed into the very heart of the advertising and communications industry – a truly unmissable opportunity,” says Steve Latham, Director of Talent and Training for Spikes Asia.


The students will be tutored by Noor Azhar, Senior Lecturer in Visual Communication and Media Design at the Singapore Polytechnic Design School. Before lecturing, Noor practiced advertising as an art director at CreAds Advertising and Batey Ads and then went on to set up integrated brand communications agency Just Media (now JM Asia). Noor has tutored the Academy since its birth in 2009.
