Helping Agencies become more profitable
No nonsense, practical, proven strategies and techniques to help your team be more successful, confident and competitive.
In today’s agencies, there is increased pressure from clients to do more for less. Our typical reaction to such pressure is to run faster, work harder and work longer – none of which are very productive in the long term. We will equip your people to achieve improved results and take ‘brave’ decisions by helping them change their behaviour. We will give you practical strategies to help you handle unprofitable or unreasonable clients, inadequate budgets, unreasonable deadlines, poor briefs and scope creep.
Chris has studied what the most successful and least successful agencies do and he shares the gold nuggets so his agency clients can be more profitable and successful.
We will help you focus proactively on your long term business goals such as profitable revenue growth and long term trusted adviser relationships with your senior client decision makers. We aim to deliver a demonstrable return on investment for you, helping you leverage your expertise and real value to your clients.
Chris is the perfect 'latent potential unlocker'. He's perfected the art of teaching all levels to understand, have confidence in and use, fast working, value driving commercial strategies...... my team have increased in confidence, are having ballsy conversations with marketing clients and procurement alike....mutual trust grows...
Each course we run with Chris pays back within a month. The payback tends to be a mixture of better briefing from clients to get better results, reduced over-servicing and/or doors opening to other parts of the client's business as they value the impact and confidence we build in them.
I couldn't recommend Chris highly enough Managing Director, Propellernet
...our team now constructively push back on deadlines effectively without any negative response from clients. They ask more questions resulting in better briefs and longer timelines. We have cut down the amount of time spent on unnecessary work, but the biggest and by far the best result has been to recover more fee for work already completed ... that in the past we would not have asked clients to pay. Managing Director, Aurora Healthcare Communications
