You need to be ready to switch focus at the drop of a hat - even while on-air.

Frank talk: Rethinking value in agency-client relationships

Frankly, the current way of working between marketing agencies and clients is in a state of flux and we are not sure what's coming next. We have seen this before, but this time it's different. We know that for marketing agencies, adding value is no longer a price nor capability consideration - those are basics that should always be right.
