“Back in the day…” agencies were their client’s closest business partners. But along the way, many things changed, and the last several years have been tough on agencies. In his keynote, Chief Brand Officer, Marc Pritchard, explores the possible causes of why it’s been so tough, to identify what to do about them, and move forward to transform our businesses together. Marc will call for raising the bar on expectations, partnership, productivity, and creativity to drive growth in the future - together.

2:30 - 3:00 PM – Inside a Data-Driven Agency Model
Marketers and agencies today are awash in data points. But the value in accumulating data is only realized when organizations are willing and able to adapt to it. That’s especially true of the agency-client partnership model. Agencies today have increasingly diverse and evolving skill sets that often crash into the reality of legacy client-organization structures. Target and GroupM recently launched a bespoke agency model that’s designed to both adapt to the realities of today’s market – and to keep adapting, based on data, as the landscape evolves.
