We’ve attended the SAE Institute several times now, so it is always a privilege to be asked to talk about our experiences within the creative sector. Recently, Cyberfrog Director, Rich, was asked to participate in a panel discussion to chat about the future of creative output and the direction it’s taking for the newly enrolled students at SAE. What’s the future of the creative sector?
Joining Rich on the panel were four other speakers including Opinder Chaggar, Duncan Lewis, John Maxwell and our client and friend, Mike Cave. Each of the panellists specialised in different industries, from film and animation to audio and the music business, as well as web design (of course).
With such a vast range of experience and knowledge, it was a great opportunity for the students to learn from the experts in their field and pick up some top tips to apply to their upcoming courses and careers.
Not only was this an opportunity to learn from the masters of their craft first-hand, but also a chance for the prospects of these industries to give their feedback and provide their own insights into the future of their specialist subjects for the panellists to take away with them.
There was also an opportunity to network with creatives and identify the barriers
After the event, Rich said, “It was a really enjoyable and rewarding event and judging by the interest, attendance and attention from the young people there, Liverpool’s creative future is in safe hands.”
The SAE Institute itself works with a commitment to preparing the next generation of creative workers and their courses are industry-focused, practice-based and taught by a specialist community of leading practitioners. They specialise in inspiring students to not only work in but also to shape creative industries worldwide.
The event was a hit with the students, who are all starting their courses in September. Lydia Quinn, a soon-to-be game art and animation student said:
“I thought the panellists were incredibly open and honest about each of their industries, about their own jobs and about the possible futures that were in store for future/current students studying at SAE.”
The event was a complete success and we can’t wait to see what awesome paths these amazing students will pave.
Thank you SAE Institute for having us once again and if any other educational or careers organisations would like us to help out in a similar way, please get in touch – we’d be happy to help.
