Session: International Growth – successful sales outside your own country
14:40 - 15:10, May 26th 2023, Strategy
Workshop: Agency Insiders
11:00 - 12:30
Making it outside your own country means endless opportunities and bigger fees. Or does it? How do agencies get to work with clients in other countries? And how easy is it? Is there some magical secret that successful agencies choose not to share? Or is it all straightforward?

We’ve worked right across the CEE and EMEA network, helping agencies sell into other countries, and I’d like to share what these agencies have learned:
– What’s the opportunity?
– Where first and how and when, and what? And why?
– What works?
– Is it worth the effort?

In this workshop, the mastermind Robert Craven uncovers the secrets to agency growth, from his rich experience of working with 100s of agencies across Europe.
