To help us analyse the year we have called on executives from Australia’s finest media agencies. Special thanks to all those who took part and, to those who didn’t, we will be after you next year! Most popular references included listening to Spotify or triple j’s Ben and Liam, while a lot of respondents enjoyed the OMD Big Day Outs!
Jeremy Cyza, Trader, OMD Melbourne
Best event you attended in 2017?
Being a part OMD Melbourne’s Big Day Out. Helping provide an insight into the client’s massive businesses we help run is a great reminder of why we do what we do on a day-to-day basis. It was a lot of fun spending the day dressed as the nun from The Conjuring (full costume and makeup) and scaring all the media owners.
Favourite breakfast radio show?
Ben & Liam – triple j. Not quite Matt & Alex, but hey, those were pretty big shoes to fill.
TV show on any platform you can’t get enough of?
The Handmaid’s Tale and The Sinner were my standouts for 2017 – anything which can tell a great story in one season and doesn’t drag things out gets a tick in my book. Watching every episode of The Block in 2017 as a 23-year-old male was my way of bucking demo expectations.
Memorable media moment from 2017?
Seeing the Kong Skull Island activation the team worked on get picked up by both trade press and general media was pretty surreal.
New Year Resolution?
Spend more money on travelling and less on material items.
