AdNews 40 Under Forty! Bloggers FTW!

I was just announced in the AdNews 40 Under Forty – ‘The rising stars in Australians Advertising, Media and Marketing.

This came as a complete surprise! I think it may have had something to do with my killer graphic design skills in my last post.

I think it was a fairly good result for bloggers, with Bannerblog’s Ash Ringrose aka ‘The hardest working man in the industry’ also copping a gurnsey!

Anyways, the criteria for the list was as follows.

-They must be in a position of leadership or on the rise within their organisation, or running their own show
-They must have the respect of their bosses, peers and competitors
-They should be rewriting marketing riles or interpreting them in a new way
-They must be in tune with community attitudes
-They have an opinion and aren’t scared to share it.

In no particular order here is the rest of the people on the list;

Sundeep Gohil (Planning Director, Partner at Droga5)

You're in good company Jules. Well done!

Apparently AdNews also wanted to do a Top 40 over 40 but they couldn't find 40 people over 40. ;-)

Well done, Jules. Today AdNews; tomorrow Cleo's most eligible bachelor?

Kate @ The Zeitgeists said...

Well done Jules. What a great wrap!

Did they get the summary on your RAITM blog right? I thought adspace-pioneers was your "thinking blog" and the RAITM is almost just like a 'media monitoring' blog?

I bet you were about the youngest on the list!

Glenn Rogers said...

Big props, great work Jules..

Katie Harris said...

Well done Julian!

: )

P.S Very pleased and impressed (but not even a tiny bit surprised) to see you on the list.

Congratulations Julian! More power to you!

Gavin Heaton said...

Nice one, Jules. And I have to agree ... I think it was those killer design skills that marks a personal tipping point for you ;)

AKTIFMAG said...

Who cares?

The only list people in the business care about is Cleo's sexiest bachelors.

When you're on that come and talk to me....no really please come and talk to me.

Julian Cole said...

Thanks everyone for the kind words, it really drives home for me the importance of blogging. Blogging has provided me a great voice to express my views and ideas and be heard, there is no way in hell that I would of made this great list if it wasn't for that.

Kate, you were right on the money, I do not use Juliancole.net for anything more than capturing my offline media stuff. Oh well, that site has seen a spike in traffic over the last couple of days. ; )

Nudge Marketing said...

Congrats man, next year hopefully you will make it to the 10 under ten :) (oh hang on a moment I think Zac is the only one that will be eligable for that)

Meg Rayner said...

Good work Ju Ju!
Rad puzzle piece by the way... very cool =)

MrTruffle said...

It should be 30 for 30 yeah? as 40 is pretty old ;)

I haven't even read it as I'm embarrassed to be on it.

It was a good spectrum of people and many people I admire and also respect 100% on there.

ZGambit said...

Congrats Jules, I also have to give it to Michael Buckley too. He is most defiantly a brilliant mind.

Good to see the Digital Marketing industry is changing.

Jacquie Riddell said...

Jacob said...

Good for you - I love to see people of such a young age doing so well for themselves. PE
