Webinar: Finding Agencies in a Diverse & Digital World

Agency, Search & Research Experts Will Discuss the Keys to Hiring Success

webinar description

How do most companies find agencies? Frequently, they ask their peers for recommendations. But is this the best way to find agencies in a diverse and digital world?

Our expert panel will highlight ways to improve the odds of finding agencies with diverse capabilities and ownership that match needs by moving beyond traditional word-of-mouth agency recommendations and peer networks as a primary tool to find communications partners.

Drawing upon research and decades of experience on the corporate and agency side of the business, the panel will detail the benefits of implementing a disciplined approach to search as well as well-managed engagement, interview and reference processes to ensure a good client-agency fit both in terms of capabilities and people.

Our panelists will share ways in which agency search technology, combined with a communications-focused RFP and competitive review process, can help companies generate better search outcomes and result in more productive, longer-term agency relationships.

Reasons to attend the webinar
  • Industry experts will share their insight about finding agencies with diverse capabilities and ownership.

  • The panel will take a deep dive into agency search methodology.

  • Have your questions ready for this panel of communications industry leaders.
