AdChat Interviews Dallas Shining Stars Award Recipients | Fun! Fun!

Top 20 Women in Dallas Advertising Chat About Their Jobs

The AAF Dallas Shining Stars inaugural award ceremony took place June 13th at House of Blues, to honor and celebrate the the creativity, ambition and leadership of the top 20 women in Dallas advertising.  Nominated and voted in by their peers, these women run the gamut from C-level executives and Co-Founders to Group Creative Directors and Media Strategists. AAF Dallas teamed up with presenting sponsor, SMU Temerlin Advertising Institute to make the luncheon a huge success.

The Dallas Shining Star program was created by AAF Dallas to elevate Dallas as a top advertising market and to show off the incredible talented women we have in our advertising and marketing communities. Since the metroplex has become a hot spot for Fortune 500 headquarters, local advertising, media and marketing agencies are turning New York, Los Angeles and Chicago agencies on their ear. It’s a no-brainer that these top 20 women will continue to help make that happen.

AdChat DFW interviewed a few of the award recipients. We asked them these “serious” questions:

  1. What’s the best part of your job?
  2. What’s the worst?
  3. Did you choose to go into advertising or did it just happen?
  4. What star would you choose to replace you for a day and why?
  5. Describe in one word how it feels to be a Dallas Shining Star.

You can imagine the fun we had with their answers.
