Vicky Chen is Head of Strategy at VIRTUE Nordic (part of Vice) in Copenhagen. She arrived in strategy via psychology and writing. She's worked in New York, Amsterdam, and San Francisco at agencies such as Naked, Sid Lee, and AKQA. She reached strategy in an indirect way, much like many of us. And this is what we discuss. How do you get into strategy? What are the pros and cons of advertising schools? And why people from different backgrounds make for better strategy departments.
