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!
Lauren Gibb, Social Executive, OMD Sydney
Best event you attended in 2017?
I attended my first official awards ceremony this year, which was very exciting! It was great to see so many hard-working people in the industry rewarded for their efforts over the past year.
Favourite breakfast radio show?
I don’t listen to radio and I’m just getting onto the podcast bandwagon (crazy, I know!). I love to discover new music on Spotify. Their personalised Release Radar and Discover Weekly playlists are perfect for finding new music, especially when Spotify knows exactly what I like through my listening history!
TV show on any platform you can’t get enough of?
I binge-watched Stranger Things pretty early on, so now I’m watching Mindhunter. So far so good!
Memorable media moment from 2017?
My favourite moment was when the marriage equality survey results were announced. Some of the best news we’ve had all year!
New Year Resolution?
I try to avoid making resolutions because they almost never stick. However, travelling more is always a good thing to strive towards.
