UBA/ACC Masterclass on working with several agencies at the same time

UBA/ACC Masterclass on working with several agencies at the same time

Advertisers want to speak with 1 voice when they start a dialogue with their consumers. And they are keen on integrating all their contact points on the same strategy. Yet, they often work with several agencies, each renown for their specialism. This MasterClass gives clear guidelines for advertisers on how to manage relationships and working procedures with several agencies.

The MasterClass is an initiative from the Expert Center Digital, but the output is relevant for all agencies confronted with working with other agencies on the same brand or company. It was developed in close collaboration with the UBA, which underlines the importance of solid procedures and transparant agreements in case of multi agency relationships.

ACC and UBA will organise a MasterClass for advertisers and agency people to elaborate on the subject; to share best practices and to work on real life cases. The first edition of this MasterClass is planned in English on September 25th at UBA (max 25 participants!).

Objective of the MasterClass: To provide the awareness, mind-set, skills and strategies to help improve the effectiveness of running a multi-discipline agency team.

  • To identify the issues and blocks that holds back integration.
  • To co-create solutions to address the issues.
  • To provide some key skills and belief systems to help improve the way we manage such complex teams.
