About this masterclass
A quick Google will tell you there are over 25,000 agency businesses in the UK, and with London home to the lion’s share, agency owners are finding it tough to make their business stand out.
In a competitive market where there is often a race to the bottom to win work, and with ever more political and economic uncertainty on the horizon, it’s your people and your ability to get the best out of them which is your competitive advantage.
Your agency’s culture is key to everything you do. It helps you attract and retain the best people, deliver exceptional work and create an inspiring atmosphere that drives growth. It’s what sets you apart from the competition.
Yet, many agencies still see ‘culture’ as a tick box exercise, something quickly solved by a mission statement on the wall or installing a pool table in the breakout area. Your culture runs much deeper than that and can make or break your business.
#AdamHosts is our new breakfast masterclass series focussing on solutions to key challenges faced by growing agency businesses.
In this masterclass, you’ll learn how to give your agency the edge by developing a culture to drive growth, boost diversity & inclusion, foster innovation and enhance your team’s well-being.
Leon Milns, Founder of We are Adam
For the past 15 years, Leon has been helping independent agencies find, attract and retain the very best talent. And if there’s one thing he’s found that helps agencies attract the best people (and keep them engaged) it’s an inspiring and supportive company culture that permeates every inch of their business.
Leon will be sharing how leading agency clients have shaped their company culture and the effects this has had on their business to help them both attract and retain exceptional people. Learn best practice tips for developing your agency's shared values, beliefs, and behaviour and explore how to avoid costly mistakes.
