Speaker Series with Mike Hughes

Mike Hughes at the Brandcenter:

We had a great turnout for the inaugural event in our new speaker series. Mike Hughes, President of The Martin Agency and an important creative leader in the Richmond advertising community, spoke at the VCU Brandcenter about his life and career.

Mr. Hughes opened his talk with an overview of what’s happening at The Martin Agency today, followed by some words of wisdom—although, with his trademark humor, he said he was irritated that wisdom hasn’t come with age.

In a generous Q&A session, he offered some advice for building a successful agency: “Be really good at something.” While the industry has changed since he joined The Martin Agency, he said the core of the business remains the same—attract good talent, foster collaboration, and bring big ideas to life.

Thanks to Mr. Hughes for the wonderful conversation, to the VCU Brandcenter for hosting the event, and to everyone in attendance. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Special thanks to Metcalf Photography for all of the great event photos.
