007 - Break Down the Silos

Suitscast 007 It's ironic how easy it can be to stop communicating in a communications industry like advertising. Avoiding the pull to silo up in agency departments is key in keeping a spirit of collaboration and keeping all ad agency personnel in the loop on your clients. Being in a client-facing role means your colleagues in other departments will only know what you tell them about your clients. Megan Paquin from &Barr offers excellent insights on the above and more from her PR background: How to balance managing clients directly day-to-day vs. delegating to employees under you (if you're in a management role) Using transparency to avoid agency silos and encourage idea creation Diving deep into the evolution of PR, including the state of influencers in 2018 Megan's bio: http://meganp.andbarr.co This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

006 - Being an Effective Team Player

Suitscast 006 With March Madness in full swing, there's no better time to drop an episode with a sports theme. In the ad agency space, being in an account management role requires us to be rock-solid referrees. Client needs will always be constant, but referees must also be effective in managing the home team internally. Today's episode features plenty of laughs. MaryKay Scott from Marketing in Color chats with me about balancing many of those internal-facing questions we face commonly: Adhering to agency processes, while knowing when to go outside of them on specific projects Keeping meetings focused and preventing them from drifting to being time-wasters Keeping the inherent tension between creative and account teams in check Email MaryKay: mkscott@marketingincolor.com This podcast is powered by Pinecast.
