"I Don't Know Who I Am" - When An Advertising Career Loses Itself - Philip Slade, Strategy Consultant
What happens when a creative career leads to a self-destructive life?
Philip Slade went from Mac Operator at famed music magazine Smash Hits to art director at Saatchi & Saatchi then to creative director and planning director roles and, eventually, to managing partner of Crispin Porter + Bogusky London. But along the way he had to reckon with his relationship with drugs and alcohol and to himself.
In this episode, we discuss:
- career mid-points,
- working in the London agency world in the 1980s,
- being adopted,
- and the difficult realities of decades spent making up stories.
