Your Growth Journey

24 May, London / 23 June, Manchester / 14 July, Bristol

• Meet other agency leaders on a growth journey
• Learn from others and share what you know
• Make your business bigger… without making it harder

When you come to an Agency Hackers event, you’ll meet other people on a similar journey to you. We spend some time listening to speakers we’ve chosen, and some time discussing your progress in small groups.

“We’re putting in place a lot of new systems, software and structure – along with new people. With so much to install it can feel like one step back to get two steps forward.” Agency Hackers member

Growth is great – but it can bring great pain. Join us at Agency Hackers Live and share your story of growth with other agency leaders.

When you’re growing your agency, these things happen:

  • You stop being able to rely on inbound and referrals alone
  • All your processes start to leak (especially the parts that still depend on the founder)
  • It all seems hard and you can want to give up

At Agency Hackers Live, you’ll hear from agency leaders with real-experience on what it takes to grow. Systemising your sales, communicating your strategy so your team is on-board, structuring your agency for growth, and more.

Meet people who are interested in your story

Agency Hackers Live helps you get inspired, and meet other people you can learn from. We blend interactive talks and group discussion.

  • We seat you at round tables 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.

Q: What actually happens on the day?

We start the event at 1.30pm, so try to arrive by 1.15pm.

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-toothed 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 the actual guests at the event.

We 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: Why are there two types of ticket?

Member’s tickets are for people with an agency that has an active Agency Hackers membership.

When you’re a member, you can buy as many member tickets as you like. (Please make sure they only go to people in your business, though.)

If you aren’t a member, you can buy a non-member ticket.

We don’t generally allow vendors to attend. There are exceptions (you might work with agencies, but you might also be an agency yourself), so if you aren’t sure just ask.
