IN:WA has continued to grow in the last month, with both Hatchet and SLICK Design signing up as the 17th and 18th members respectively, bringing IN:WA’s 2023 goal of 20 members well within sight.
IN:WA’s Interim Chair, Jeff Champtaloup, said: “We continue to see a common thread amongst our member agencies, with agency leaders wanting to represent a sustainable and high calibre industry that benefits Western Australia.”
Daniel Gouvignon, Director of Hatchet, said: “My career started alongside Distl and Workhouse. To now sit alongside these fellow members, and other incredible agencies, is a testament to how much of an impact advocating for WA-jobs-first can have.”
The positive contribution independents can have as a collective is recognised by George Vasiliou of SLICK. “At SLICK, we believe that a truly lasting impact comes from working together. By joining IN:WA alongside our agency peers, we seek to contribute to the ongoing efforts to build a better industry in WA’s vibrant creative community. We share IN:WA’s commitment to advocate and strengthen local businesses and look forward to the valuable conversations and cooperation this organisation will generate.”
As part of this commitment to creating a positive platform for our member businesses, IN:WA hosted its second Owners + Leaders Assembly in September. For owners, executives and senior leaders, O+LA presents a very unique space in which opportunities and challenges can be openly shared within the group. The next O+LA will be a Christmas event held in December.
In the meantime, if you want to get a feel for other IN:WA events, tickets are now available for our next panel event on Thursday 26 October. ‘Concept to Copyright: The Value of Intellectual Property’ will draw on industry experts to better understand how IP is defined, protected and commercialised across our industry. Tickets available via Eventbrite.
