Demonstrating Your Value, through an Agency Mindset
SPARKER: Adrian Cropley, ABC, Fellow RSA
Does your management team give more credence to agency advice? Sometimes we need to step back, stop thinking like a communication professional and start thinking like a hired consultant. Embark on the journey to Act Like An Agency, develop an consultative approach, so you can demonstrate your business value in a language your C-suite understands. Together we will work through and discuss the Business model for the Communication Professionals and focus on the strategic approach to demonstrating value.
Adrian will explore:
- Why Act Like An Agency? Embracing the mindset of an internal consultant and understanding what the business wants.
- Exploring the value you and your team bring to the table and how to gain greater buy-in for your work.
- Explore examples of how some organizations are putting the agency model into practice.
