They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks … probably because these Legends invented them already! And that’s where industry stalwarts – who’ve probably seen it all in their careers – are able to share their experience, insights and wisdom with a new generation of media industry professionals and Rising Stars.
Today’s media owners, agencies, and marketing specialists are not merely selling products, they need to become more strategic in understanding their client’s business imperatives, and building solutions that support them in delivering on their strategy.
They’re also working in a highly competitive space, where becoming a preferred supplier or partner, requires them to elevate their brands above the competition. One way to do this is to tailor offerings to specific client brands, so they buy into an agency’s innovation and business acumen – and not just their products.
