Upcoming Virtual Events
At this month’s client services mastermind, we’re asking: how do you manage international client relationships?
How can you strengthen relationships with overseas clients without meeting in person? How does each continent differ in how they do business? And how do you approach an international client when you’ve never done business outside of the UK before?
Come along to discuss all this and more, and get advice from others on this topic. If you’re clued up on this already, please lend your expertise!
You’re always out to impress when you’re pitching for new biz. But do you share too much in that process?
How do you tread that line? How can you protect your proposals and creative process from being poached?
If this has happened to you, or you’re struggling to figure this out, come along and discuss it with like-minded folks in this open session.
In this month’s HR and people mastermind, we’ll be talking about how to manage Gen Z team members.
How is Gen Z different from other generations? How are they similar? And how can you get them to develop the same work ethic you have?
Come along to share tips, vent your frustrations, and find out from your peers how you can better support your younger team members.
While freelancing for NCompass, Samantha Stormo could see that the manual processes in the agency desperately needed improvement.
After a year of finetuning and implementing Scoro, Samantha has discovered a wealth of benefits for the entire agency.
“Instead of imagining what profitability looks like, we can actually make adjustments on the fly. Now is when it gets really exciting because we can use the insights and data from Scoro to start to make some more informed choices and play around with things,” she explains.
Hear more from Samantha on how Scoro has helped NCompass improve operations for the benefit of the agency as a whole.
Have you considered, or perhaps implemented, profit share for your agency?
It’s true that it doesn’t work for everyone, and some are sceptical as to whether it’s the fairest – and most sustainable – option for their team.
Should you instead be tying it to performance, and rewarding people based on output and merit?
We’ll be discussing profit sharing in this month’s CFO surgery.
The tender process can be an arduous one.
What should you include in your bid to make sure you win? And where do you even start in the first place?
In this month’s marketing and new biz mastermind, our panellists – Amabel Grant, Becky Whittaker and Russell Jones – take you through the tender application process and the hurdles you should be aware of.
Any kind of personal development is important to become a better, more thoughtful leader. But for Martin Palethorpe, shifting your consciousness is the answer to making this difference.
He’ll be sharing his experience in the Andes, taking part in Ayahuasca and Yopo ceremonies, and how you could benefit from being more deeply connected to yourself and the world.
In this month’s LinkedIn mastermind, we’re asking: what tools do you use to boost your agency’s profile?
Do you post about your team and clients? What tools does LinkedIn offer that you’re perhaps not utilising? Should you be considering other channels?
Come along to this open discussion to share how you are showcasing your purpose on LinkedIn – and share your own solutions to this problem.
How does your agency manage its time? It’s a simple question – but it’s the difference between an agency that is growing and profitable, and one that’s losing money and is stressful to run.
Join us to learn how to optimise your time management strategy, prevent over and underestimation of tasks, and keep your workforce healthy, happy, and highly productive.
Should you be more ‘picky’ with the clients you work with? Some agencies avoid working with certain companies to uphold their purpose-driven reputation; others say it’s too risky. Where do you sit?
In this session, Ranzie Anthony, founder and CEO of Athlon, shares why his agency only works with certain kinds of organisations, as well as the benefits of narrowing your client pool.
While generative tools are having their moment in the sun, in what other ways can your agency harness AI? Vincent Sider, AI trainer and founder of GetInference, says agencies should already be embracing machine learning as part of their funnel.
We’ll be discussing all of this with Vincent in this month’s AI mastermind – and he’ll also be showing us how machine learning works in action. Join us as we explore a different side of the AI boom, and how it could benefit you.
The way agencies work has changed drastically in the last three years – but have you ever considered hiring distributed teams? David Wain-Heapy and Bachir Smahi run Prodigi, which helps agencies hire teams that work in harmony all over the world. Join us as we talk in more detail about the distributed teams model and its preconceptions, and how it could benefit you and your agency’s growth.
Agencies strive to have an open and fair culture – but it’s not as easy as it sounds. This is something that Katy Howell not only champions, but has successfully achieved over the last year at immediate future.
Join us as we chat with Katy about creating a more open culture, simply by being upfront as founders – and be sure to bring your own experiences too.
A lot of our members are taking the reins right now – but it’s a tricky cross to bear. How can you fill your founder’s shoes and assert yourself as a leader, in your own way? How are you adapting to the challenges that come with leadership?
Our new leaders’ hangout is a private place for you to chat about your wins and worries in a safe space with others going through it too.
“When agency owners feel stuck, they normally don’t have anyone to bounce ideas off. So the idea kind of plateaus,” says growth consultant Freia Muehlenbein.
Do you have a plan that you’ve been trying to put in motion? Maybe you’re interested in scaling your team, but don’t know where to start – or your financial performance is lower than you’d like, and you need to take your agency’s revenue up a notch. In this session, Freia will be on hand with expert advice on how to ‘get unstuck’ and make meaningful strategic change happen in your business – without the headache.
