Announcing our Community Advisors

The Inside Out® Community is pleased to announce the appointment of eleven new advisors to the membership community for in-house creative leaders

As the membership grows, so does the need for additional knowledge and expertise to support those leading in-house creative teams across the UK and EMEA.

We have worked hard to collaborate with experts who we know will bring sound advice, practical guidance, and additional knowledge to our community.

Each of our Advisors has a specific range of knowledge, experience, and skills to share to ensure we provide a robust mix of expertise. From creative operations, digital transformation, and AI to cultural insights and in-house creative leadership, we have it covered.

In short, our Advisors will be available to support our membership through sharing their knowledge and experience and being available to answer any questions they may have.

We are therefore delighted to announce our panel of experts, who will be on hand to support our members in 2024.
