13. THE IMPOSTEROUS
A promising career in fashion design was cut short when Vicki discovered she couldn’t draw. Encouraged by her mentor Paul Smith to write her ideas down instead, Vicki soon found her way into the world of advertising. Vicki joined Grey London in 2009, creating campaigns for clients including British Heart Foundation, Lucozade and Marks & Spencer. She is now Chief Creative Officer at Havas London. Vicki is also a vocal champion of diversity and helped establish the Creative Circle Foundation, supporting people from diverse backgrounds wanting to get into advertising. The IPA has named Vicki one of advertising’s Women of Tomorrow, Business Insider voted her one of the 10 most influential women in advertising. In 2016 she took the Chairmanship of the Creative Circle Awards – becoming the first female chair in history – as well as a judge of the Cannes Glass Lions.
