Max Value: How to triple your agency’s size

A tightly focused morning conference for owners and leaders of agencies, this was a sell-out event held at One Alfred Place.

The conference follows from the sold out Max Value: How to achieve the maximum exit price events in 2017 and 2018.

Hosted by superstar motivational coach and speaker Judymay Murphy, this important event focuses on the methodology for delivering very fast growth – 40-70% year on year – which doubles or triples revenue over a two year period. The processes are straightforward to understand and are designed to build coherence in your senior team. The speakers will discuss their methods, processes and outcomes, sharing how each strategic element works in practice so you can use it yourself. You will come away with an understanding of industry-leading methodologies, and with three powerhouse speakers you’ll learn more about:

  1. How to build towards maximum exit value
  2. Agency leadership fundamentals
  3. Strategy Map development and building team buy-in
  4. The Execution Roadmap and how to use it to triple revenue

There are an extremely limited number of tickets available and the audience will be 80% agency leaders and owners with a small number of additional guest places. You will be able to network with your fellow agency leaders during the break and after the panel session.

Thursday March 7th, 9-12, One Alfred Place, WC1
