FUSE Calls: Stephen Gates


“The world is full of people who can make pretty pictures. What do you bring to the team?”

In our second edition of the “FUSE Calls" podcast series, Informa Head of Brand and Design Dan Madinabeitia sat down with Stephen Gates, Head of Design at Citi, to talk about how to write a resume that will get you noticed.

FUSE Calls is a series of interviews where the FUSE team literally picks up the phone and calls disruptive design and brand strategy leaders across the globe - some of whom will be speaking at our upcoming FUSE 2016 Conference in Miami this spring. Dan will also be dialing in to speak with the very esteemed members of our FUSE community. Our goal is to share insight, promote design-thinking and hopefully inspire anyone interested in branding and design as it relates to strategic vision. 

In this session of FUSE Calls, Stephen shared tips on how to write a resume that will get you noticed.

“If you don’t have the ability to treat yourself like a brand, to be able to step back and understand what your story is, and understand where you want to go, your resume is not going to get noticed,” said Stephen.

He went on to say, “The world is full of people who can make pretty pictures. What do you bring to the team? What is your value? How are you different? That’s what gets great jobs, that’s what gets great salaries, that’s what gets great positions – people who can articulate that.”
