“What do I actually want? What is my plan here? Do I want to do this business forever?”

These were just some of the questions Pete Reis-Campbell, founder and CEO of Kaizen, was asking himself. To help answer them, he went on a three-month-long sabbatical.

And he realised the answers sooner than he expected, with the break giving Pete the confidence to explore an exit of some kind.

 “When it comes to taking a sabbatical, it depends on what you’re going to be doing. If your goal is to travel the world, it should probably be a year.”

“You have to set an intention or purpose for the break, but also each day, even if it’s something small like a run. Otherwise, you drive yourself crazy because you’re living this semi-retired life,” he says. “When you get the time off you’ve always wanted, you realise how important it is to have an actual purpose in life.”

Come along and hear Pete’s sabbatical story, and how it’s completely changed his outlook on his agency. If you have questions over your agency’s future or are considering a break, this will be a very helpful session.

“Imagine your IP and assets, all this good stuff you have in your business, as ingredients in your store cupboard. You might normally use those ingredients to make a lasagne, when you could also be using the same ingredients to make something completely different.”

Erica Wolfe-Murray, managing director of Lola Media, helps companies squeeze every drop of juice out of their intellectual property lemons.

“Most agencies are largely building other people’s businesses – their clients. But the IP system and laws are actually there to protect creators and help them earn revenue from their creations. Agencies should be using this system to build their businesses too.”

“I identify what’s in an agency or studio’s store cupboard and help them mix things up to make something they can sell,” she says. “In other words, I audit the assets they already own to repurpose them in new, imaginative ways.”

Join us as we talk through exactly how to exploit these areas with Erica – you might be sitting on a creative goldmine.

In our very first session on EOS with Julia Langkraehr, we covered Vision. Now we’ve reached our final session, the Traction component is taking centre stage.

And in the EOS model, the two work together.

“We want to bring your vision down to the ground to execute it effectively day in, day out,” says Julia.

One of the tools to achieve this is Rocks – priorities you must accomplish as an agency within the next 90 days. These targets are usually set during quarterly planning sessions.

“These are the things which will move the business on,” explains Julia. “If we just do business as usual, staying where we are, we don’t grow.”

Other things to help improve your execution include introducing a meeting pulse, with regular weekly meetings, known as Level 10s – we’ll be talking about these in more detail in the session.

“You don’t want your teams on top of each other. You want them to be linked together, while avoiding everybody sitting in meetings three days a week, with only two days left to do their jobs,” says Julia. “We want to actually be productive.”

We’ll be talking about how to avoid making your Rocks overly complicated, and how best to implement this Traction component in order for your agency to thrive and focus.

“Imagine this. You’re a UK agency based in London, with no international staff and no language skills in your business. Your clients have just asked, ‘Can you do German?’ What are you going to say to that?”

Are you majorly missing out because you only “do” English?

“Language is actually an unforeseen revenue model,” says Mark Alford, director at Managed Language.

“The moment you land an international brand, it’s not just one execution, it’s 17,” he says. “Suddenly a deal you’ve got on the table for £25k turns into £350k, because it’s multilingual.”

Join us as Mark explores how to tap into international markets using a language-first approach, and why translation agencies can be harmful to your brand.
