The New York Festivals International Advertising Awards have partnered with the Berlin School of Creative Leadership for the Helga and Michael Conrad scholarhip
“The industry of creative communications evolves at such a rapid pace, requiring the need to continue to learn and adapt. Berlin School’s ‘Helga and Michael Conrad Scholarship for New York Festivals Jury Members’ speaks volumes in terms of its dedication to improving the industry standard and establishing stronger creative leadership as a result,” said Michael O’Rourke, President International Awards Group. “We’re honoured to be part of this initiative, and share this excellent opportunity with our Executive and Grand Jury members.”
Today, effective leadership is critical to great work in all creative industries. The Berlin School’s mission is to “turn great creatives into great creative leaders”. And “having a creative CEO in every creative business” is the Berlin School’s vision.
“With our (fully paid) scholarship we want to globally spread the word amongst creative leaders about the Berlin School's successful mission "turning great creatives into great creative leaders" and at the same time of course we'd love to add another brilliant creative mind to our diverse classroom in March 2013. It’s so great we can do this with our friends from the New York Festivals for their outstanding group of global jury members.” Helga & Michael Conrad, President, Berlin School of Creative Leadership
