Creatives: You’re Invited! Reimagining Your Creative Career: Ari Agency Leadership Series

Creativity as a Career

Join us and our panel of top Toronto creative leaders for an intimate and interactive conversation, “Re-imagining Your Creative Career.”

Are you a creative looking to find an innovative and rewarding career in the digital world? This event will explore all the opportunities within the industry—from start-ups, technology companies, and consultancies to going client-side or media publishing.


Our diverse panelists are well known names in the industry who have reimagined their careers and launched digital start-ups and successful consultancies.. These leaders have mapped a different course on their own terms and will share their stories about how they got there.

  • Redefine what it means to be a creative within today’s culture of digital transformation

  • Get inspired about all the possibilities when it comes to realizing your career goals

  • Discover how others have forged a new path and dealt with the challenges of reinvention mid-career

Creative Career Panelists

A successful creative career isn’t a linear progression, but an ongoing reimagination of the work you want to create.

After the panel discussion, there will be plenty of time to grab a drink, a bite to eat and meet up with some of your industry colleagues.


Whether you’re agency-side, corporate or freelance, this is a unique opportunity for creatives to come together and discuss your career trajectory in a relaxed setting.

Art/Creative Directors, Copy Writers, Experience Designers, and Designers welcome.
