Winter Meeting: San Diego, CA – February 16th & 17th

This February, join us at our Winter Meeting held at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, CA.  We have opened our doors on Friday, February 17th to guests, and would love to have you. But hurry! Guest spots are available to the first two inquiring agencies.

Our keynote speaker for Friday is Jay Acunzo. He is an amazing speaker with a ton of energy. Below is the title and description of his presentation, we have worked with him for several weeks on a great topic we know every agency will love.

Unthinkable: How Top Marketers Do Exceptional Things by Making Creativity & Brand Smart, Not Scary, in Any Industry

Agency leaders today can get caught between a rock and hard place when pushing clients towards better thinking. On the one hand, proven, conventional thinking is everywhere, packaged as nice, neat, and SAFE lists of tips-and-tricks we can use to persuade others of our approach. But all that list-following won’t differentiate a brand. On the other hand, examples of thinking are everywhere too, but no amount of Red Bull or BMW or the Ritz will help our clients evolve their thinking.

How can we elevate the conversation? How can we inspire better, more innovative actions from clients? How can we grow their brands, inspire better creativity, and help them differentiate in a noisy world?

In this fast-paced, inspiring talk, keynote speaker, writer, and podcast host Jay Acunzo will kick off our Friday on a high note and get us fired up to re-think how we approach creativity and risk-taking with our clients. He’ll share stories of marketers doing what their competitors wouldn’t dare try, all while viewing it as the safe, smart play. He’ll lead us through the journey from average and conventional to creative and exceptional. And you’ll walk away with a smart, specific framework to help your clients stop running scared and start considering the right questions.

In the end, we want competitors to watch in awe as we take our clients from average to exceptional, doing things we know are smart but others see as a giant leap.

So ask yourself: Are you ready to do the Unthinkable?
