⚙️ The Agency Process and Operations Conference

Tuesday 11th June 2024 – 1.15pm to 5pm
The British Library, Kings Cross

Are you on a journey to improve your agency’s process and operations?

Clockwork is an afternoon where you can learn from – and be inspired by – other agency leaders who are making their agencies run smoother.

  • You’ll hear candid stories of failure and success from other agencies on a path to make their business work better.
  • You’ll also get to talk confidentially about your business with people who know what it’s like to walk in your shoes… because they’re currently doing it.
  • You can hear how other businesses are creating processes that work for them – and getting people (even creative people!) to stick to them.

Meet other people improving how their agency runs

Clockwork is an afternoon that will help you get inspired, and meet other agency process and operations people that you can learn from.

We blend interactive talks and group discussion.

  • We dot you around the venue so you can interact – and we mix up the groups so you meet different people.
  • We poll you before the event to see what you want to talk about.
  • We make sure all the talks are original and interesting. We facilitate questions and reflections throughout.

It’s aimed at agency leaders and their process or operations leaders – but anybody can come.

  • Our venue is the Knowledge Centre at The British Library. We have the entire building, so you will explore the venue interacting with different agency leaders. We mix up the groups so you meet different people.
  • We poll you before the event to see what you want to talk about.

Clockwork – FAQs 🤖

Q: What actually happens on the day?

We start the event at 1.15pm, so try to arrive by 1pm.

The afternoon’s format is pretty simple: you will spend some time hearing from guests with interesting stories that you can learn from, and you will also spend some time in small groups discussing your journey with like-minded agency leaders.

The event is hosted by an Agency Hackers facilitator who makes sure that everybody with something interesting to say gets heard. (We poll attendees before the event, so we know who to ‘pick on’ on the day.)

We will serve tea, coffee and sweet things to keep you going, but please eat a sandwich before you arrive. The schedule doesn’t leave us time to serve lunch, unfortunately.

Q: Who will I hear from? Who are the speakers?

The people you’ll hear from are all agency leaders with interesting stories to tell about agency process or operations.

We also decide who to spotlight based on the information we capture in the weeks before. (Look out for our emails!)

We will publish the line-up a few weeks before, but mostly we hope that you will trust us to select interesting folk from our audience. We find that the people who choose to attend our events are overwhelmingly on fascinating journeys that will resonate with you.

Also, the ‘talks’ aren’t really linear presentations. They’re more like structured case studies, with lots of questions and reflections from the audience.

You could potentially call them ‘fireside chats’, but these are not rambling cosy conversations. They are planned and structured . We put a lot of work into researching our guests, out of respect for your time.

Q: Who can attend?

This event is mainly for agency owners and leaders – but it’s potentially of interest to keen “second in commands” who might be responsible for growth.

Basically, anybody can attend if you think it looks up your street.
