Madeleine Morris, Founder, The Society of Very Senior Creatives
The Society of Very Senior Creatives
Madeleine has worked in many of London’s top advertising agencies including Grey, Saatchi & Saatchi and Leo Burnett. Before moving to adland, she was a successful set designer, working with such greats as Derek Jarman and Eddie Izzard. Madeleine’s advertising career now spans over 20 years. She has written ground-breaking ads, won awards and campaigned to get more women into creative departments. After becoming increasingly aware of the extreme ageism in the media industry, Madeleine founded The Society of Very Senior Creatives. Now she is on a mission to improve prospects for people over the age of 45 working in media and hopes this will affect how they are portrayed in ads. Madeleine is a Bloom member and mentor, a Jolt Academy lecturer, mentor and a featured ‘Lone Star’ in the Campaign Annual – Hot in 2018.
