Just in case you’ve been wondering who we are … here’s a quick who’s who for the Leo Burnett Grad class of 2010
Jonathan Drennan (23) is from Belfast and worked as a journalist before Leo Burnett. He worked in Ireland, England and South Africa and out scooped his competitors with lead features on the ethical difficulties behind eating Christmas turkeys and a parrot who phoned the police and had a chat.
Richard Galt (24) is from High Wycombe and worked as an English Teacher in Japan for a year. On his way back he travelled through Russia and sported a handlebar moustache and a lime green all in one fake Adidas track suit to fit in. It seemed to work.
Charlie Kirkbride (23) is a history graduate from York University. Also the sad owner of an adidas onesie (acid pink) – she’s the idiot who willingly trapped herself in a bin, in order to get a job at Leo’s….
Jess Farahar (21) is the baby and second immigrant of the group. Joining Leo Burnett fresh from university and the sunny shores of Sydney, Australia, Jess is learning to love grey skies, and is excited to make the move into advertising after two years in PR.
Rachel Woolley (26) was a translator and an English teacher in a former life. She likes sunshine, coffee, the seaside and scarves. She doesn’t like grey, aimless travelers, butternut squash soup or musky perfume.
Elise Norman (24) has joined Leo Burnett in a desperate attempt to reclaim her soul after spending two years as an investment banker. She is particularly fond of her vinyl, book and fancy-dress collections, and her hero is Willy Wonka.
