At The Face of Talent 2017, the 4A’s and MAIP team connected an unprecedented 209 MAIP fellows with over 250 advertising and media professionals and countless learning experiences. Throughout the week, fellows packed over 2,000 meal kits in three hours with CityMeals on Wheels and Omnicom Health Group, were introduced to five of Dentsu Aegis Network’s agencies at Agency Immersion Day, developed skills for their next challenge with DigitasLBi during the Leadership Development Forum, watched as Fellow Lisa Marie Rainford chose her future agency among Atlanta’s Advertising For Change program (congrats, Fitzgerald & Co.!) and were given an unparalleled welcome to our industry. During the luncheon, Dentsu Aegis Network committed to 25 fellows in #MAIP2018. We’re proud to call the MAIP Class of 2017 our newly minted #MAIPAlum and encouraged by the astounding support from our partner agencies.
