Verizon Media Academy is a program to build leaders of the future. The exclusive two-day event gives attendees the chance to learn from industry thought leaders, network with other industry top performers, develop creative problem-solving skills and curate personal leadership brands.

Earlier this year, we asked senior leaders of our agencies and clients to nominate the rising stars within their organisations for this once in a lifetime opportunity. We received an overwhelming response of over 200 nominations of the best and brightest talent across Australia and New Zealand.
