The first session brings in advertisers’ perspective on the issues facing the agencies and what they should do to be more relevant in the coming years.
The second session address what can we learn from other service industries; like media/broadcasting, IT, consulting, auditing, telecom and interactive/digital. This will help gain insights on how to increase competency, be more remunerative, attract and retain talent.
