Chief Innovation Officer, Mullen; Professor of Practice Boston University. Hire and employ young people who are the future of the business and also work to educate them. I have an acute awareness for their skill, talent, work ethic and ability to contribute. Don't want to see them taken advantage of or work for in an industry that does.

End unpaid internships
Too many companies in certain industries -- especially fashion and entertainment -- get away with unpaid internships because students are so eager for experience. Granted the economy is tough, but in too many cases, it's nothing more than exploitation of young talent. It does not cost that much to pay an intern and the benefits are numerous.

  • Chance to test out future employee
  • Build good will, PR and word of mouth among new generation
  • Get access to digital thinking and behavior
  • Benefit from the passion and drive of young employees
Let's make sure the ad industry ends unpaid internships and sets an example for other creative businesses in the process.
