NEW YORK: Horror stories makes it to NYC


(Illustration credit: Meredith Mendosa)

It's true. Every single one of us has been there. The client/agency/colleague who made you lose it, the 8-month project you thought you'd never survive, making 100 phone calls just to get one response, or the one too many tequila shots at the company Christmas party.

That's why for our October event we thought we would have a discussion that will spook, shock and slightly traumatize you all with tales of epic failures, clients from hell and major f@ck ups. We have handpicked a great line-up of amazing women to tell us about the zombie apocalypse moments of their careers and what they did to survive them.

If they were able to come out of them unscathed, then there is hope for all of us.
