Safely bringing the industry back together.

2021 was an unprecedented year for all businesses. It’s fair to say that agency leaders had to quickly reinvent and reposition their teams and business models in order to remain relevant and profitable. As we move through 2022 what does the future hold in store for agencies?

As agency leaders juggle doing more with less time and resources, we’re taking the 2022 Symposium back to the beautiful Hunter Valley and reformatting it as a high value, two-day event on September 6th and 7th.

Join us to learn how agencies can best position their people and businesses for The Road Ahead. Hear from the most influential minds in the industry as we discuss topics including;
– What do clients need and want from their agencies as the economy recovers?
– What does the modern-day agency look like?
– How can we collaborate with clients and partners to create new opportunity?
– Office space: Is this an opportunity to reinvent how we operate?
– Talent and Culture in a new economy

The conference program has been crafted with help from a highly influential advisory board of agency leaders. Click the ‘Apply for 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 2022.
