A one day course for client service to fulfill their role more effectively will take place in Cape Town on 10 April. The course addresses the key concepts of strategic planning, allowing client service to engage more fully with clients, planners and creative.
Client service represents the agency at the client, and the client in the agency. This dual role requires that they have an intimate understanding of client needs, briefing the agency accurately, and reverting with work that will be accepted. This is a critical chain where the work presented is only as strong as its weakest link. This one day course strengthens these links, making client service more effective in their role.
Discovering the brief as opposed to taking it: the difference between client needs and wants; the importance of problem definition
Strategy deconstructed and demystified
The relationship between objectives, strategies and tactics
Engaging clients on macro topics affecting the company as a whole, and the brand in particular
The inverted pyramid and other written communication essentials
Selling the brief internally: working with planning and creative
Relevant strategic brand principles and tools such as: brand equity, positioning, segmentation and perceptual models (and how not to be abused by them)
Getting the most from data: basic statistical principles
Insights: discovery thereof, and the dilemma of an insights-based brief
The research that client service can facilitate: the beauty of the dipstick
Pitching new business: the strategies that work; the myths that don't
The lessons learned from rejected work
How to make this statement real for the entire agency: "Your job is to service the client. If you're not servicing the client, your job is to help someone who is".
THE COURSE IS ALSO SUITABLE FOR
Junior planners and aspiring planners
Anyone wanting to engage with clients on a more strategic level
