In the second episode of the future stars of digital series, account director Curtis Sinclair tells The Drum about his luck in joining Neo@Ogilvy and how having great mentors has shaped his learning at the global digital marketing agency.

“I was lucky to have some very good mentors when I first came into the business,” he recalled. “I’ve now got a team of my own and am passing that knowledge on. The best learning you can get is working with someone who is really passionate about their job."

He also talks about how “working with people from all over the world” has really impacted his understanding of how a brand operates, not just in the UK but on a global level too.

Since joining Neo@Ogilvy three and a half years ago, Sinclair has worked across 15 different accounts. Good people and a passionate team are what have kept him going over the years and the “small agency culture” which makes it easy to “walk across the room and talk to anyone”.
