Angela Williams Is the Competition You Never Saw Coming

The onetime banker's journey in creativity

This week, #BlackTea catches up with associate creative director Angela Williams. She talks about changing careers when you actually don't hate your day job in finance, and the advantages Corporate America gave her, like communication and management skills in the work setting. Angela's experience taught her "how to be a good coach, not just a good player." Plus, she shares a key lesson in pitching when you weren't asked to pitch. In a nutshell: Make them think twice about overlooking you. Y'all, her story had my jaw on the floor. Lastly, Angela opens up about how being an identical triplet gave her a drive for winning new business. If you don't know Angela Williams, ad community, you've been missing out.
