  • IHAF Leadership Summit: Outhouse to In-House—A Creative POV

    The transition from big-time ad agency to corporate creative services can be fraught with apprehension, at best, and endless second-guessing, at worst. After all, the move is often mistakenly associated with the winding down of a career. Like our industry, however, things evolve. And that’s good. We learn that creativity can’t be confined. Nor does it require patterned walls or purple furniture. In this session, Todd Miller shares his journey from the outside in, including how embracing the full potential of the in-house model can not only successfully advance the work, but recruitment, client relationships and people’s lives. (Notwithstanding the fact that his current workplace has purple furniture, the work came first.)
