GPJ London challenge – a chance to attend SXSW 2018!

The first internal competition of its kind committed to supporting internal growth, learning and development by focusing on our core principles of creativity, collaboration and community. The prize – A trip to SXSW in Austin, Texas; to get inspired, learn about future trends and come back to London to share that knowledge with their peers.

We asked individuals to sign up to the challenge. Combining them into teams with an eclectic mix of job titles, we assigning tasks with a digital focus that played to different role attributes – designing, conceptualising, building and presenting. As a result bringing out the best examples of innovative collaboration we’ve seen yet – the talent, commitment, drive and enthusiasm of all involved shone through with some amazing (and varied) work. To those who embraced working with new colleagues on new brands with new tech, we salute you.

The judges deliberated and the eventual winners who consistently delivered across all the tasks were announced “5x5W<”. They’ve just returned from SxSW in Austin, having stepped out of their comfort zones with a newly informed approach to their day to day roles. Watch This Space for their SxSW reports – coming soon
