Bulletproof Agency Network started off 2019 with another first.
We were delighted to bring the Bulletproof Agency Network to London for our opening event of 2019. The Bulletproof Agency Network conference, Agency By Design, helped agency owners realise the business they desire.
Content focussed on the following:
Selecting and educating the right clients to deliver growth
Our first keynote speaker for the day was agency growth specialist, Robert Craven (catch a glimpse of him in action below)
Implementing effective systems and procedures to enable excellent service and maximise profitability
Our second keynote speaker was Marianne Page, who is author of three books – Process to Profit, The McFreedom Report, and the best-selling Simple Logical Repeatable – has 27 years experience of working with McDonald’s under her belt, and a further ten, working with successful small business owners like you, helping them to scale, grow and occasionally sell their business.
Getting the best people and helping to bring them on your agency journey, turning employees into passionate ambassadors
Next up we had Josie Saville and Alex Heywood from 4 and 20 Million, Josie and Alex are on a mission to change the way we work!
They co-founded 4and20million to help make businesses more productive through increasing staff motivation. They are passionate about helping companies become places where people turn up in the morning full of positive energy and leave at the end of the day feeling proud and satisfied with the work they’ve done.
4and20million are not about introducing smoothies and yoga as a quick-fix solution. We help businesses thrive by creating high-performance cultures that enable all employees to bring their best, increasing productivity, profit and reducing churn.
Helping you shape your agency with strategic understanding and effective planning
Our final speaker was Ian Hunter Director and Board member of BigDog Agency. For 20 years’ he was the Managing Director and major shareholder of Jellyfish Creative before their acquisition in 2015 by ‘integrated agency giant’, The Mission Marketing Group.
With over 25 years’ experience in marketing communication and serving as a Strategic Partner for FirstPoint USA, Ian works closely with client-side senior management teams – helping them grow their brand and maximise revenue through strategic planning, operational set-up and tactical activity.
His own experience of managing the acquisition of his own agency and being retained after the transaction has given him a unique insight into the challenges faced by agencies of all sizes. Ian is a former professional Rugby Player for Northampton Saints, Barbarians, England and the British and Irish Lions as well as a summariser for BBC Radio Northampton, 5 Live and Love Sport.
As all with all our events, ticket sales were raised for a Charity. We were delighted to support Parkinson’s UK on this occasion.
