School of Thought is an intensive twelve week course and creative competition for people who want to learn to develop and pitch big ideas. Over the twelve weeks you will visit leading Manchester agencies to hear from creative directors and senior creatives who will share their thoughts on advertising - and challenge you to present yours.
Each week you will be given a creative brief and you will return three days later to pitch your 'big idea' to your peers and industry tutor. It will be fun, frantic and painful - and all at the same time. But you will come out the other end with a new perspective on what it takes to make it in the creative industry. If you're really good, you might even have a trip to Cannes Lions to show for it.
Although there can be only one winner I was pleased to be beaten by an outstanding creative.
