The agency world is a competitive space with everyone trying to attract the best talent they can. You’re not just competing with other agencies: clients are hoovering up staff left, right and centre. So how should your agency successfully find and develop (and hold on to!) the best talent you can?
This event comes from Darren at Character Creative and Mark, Agency Growth Coach, and is aimed at agency owners and the senior management team. So how should your agency successfully find and develop (and hold on to!) the best talent you can?
From the initial search and selection through to the nurturing of in-house talent, we’ll share what works, as seen through our distinct but complementary practices And as this is part of Leeds Digital Festival, we’ll focus on digital skills and talent but much of what we’ll say applies across any agency. There’ll be a quick-fire talk from each of us, we will then open the floor to your questions (ask us anything) and we’ll guide some peer group discussion in a relaxed format.
