The theme for this year’s Agency Leaders Symposium is “Agencies Built to Last”. Over 1.5 days, we will unearth strategies employed by great agencies and hear from global industry experts on what they believe it takes to continue winning and driving growth in our changing landscape.
Hear speakers from outside the agency industry to learn what’s leading them to success in their worlds. What can we learn from their experiences, and from the innovators within the agency industry grappling with similar challenges to all of us?
Join us as our line-up of world leaders and trail blazers tackle the emerging hot issues of new competitive threats, model-changing technologies and clients-in-crisis, to the perennial issues of attracting and retaining talent, business models, and remuneration.
The Agency Leaders Symposium is the only event in APAC where senior agency leaders can address the challenges and opportunities of running a modern-day communications business.
The conference program has been crafted by a highly influential advisory board of agency leaders. Click the ‘Reserve Your Place’ button to join the most senior delegation of agency executives to gather in ANZ. We look forward to welcoming you to the Agency Leaders Symposium 2017.
