Strategy Intern

Leagas Delaney

Feb 2016
  • - I am working specifically within the strategy and planning department gaining an in-depth experience of the strategic process in an independent and boutique agency with a tradition of successful communications. - I report directly to the Head of Strategy on a daily basis as well as working closely with the account management and creative teams. - I am responsible for preparation of chemistry meetings, pitches and status updates. My day-to-day responsibilities include supporting the planning department by supplying research documents, consumer personas, user journeys, creative briefs and participating in focus groups/consumer interviews. - As I have gained greater experience I have been offered greater responsibility owning the creation of presentations for a new communications framework (Value Retail), a new creative presentation (Patek Philippe) and working closely alongside our Strategy director on a 6 month social strategy piece which will determine Value Retail’s global strategy. - I am working on a huge variety of clients including, but not limited to, Patek Philippe, Penfolds, Value Retail, Lil-lets and many other clients for new business.
