The Drum Network is taking its calendar of business events to the next level by launching Business Jam – a new monthly half-day conference aimed at helping its agency members to find fresh perspectives on the challenges faced by all ambitious and growing agencies.
Conveying The Drum Network’s belief that bringing agencies together to help support and inspire one another can make a huge difference to agency success, The Drum Network’s Business Jams will take place in London and draw on The Drum Network team’s extensive contacts book to bring together a wide range of experts in the marketing field to share the techniques that generate real agency and business success.
Building on The Drum Network’s chapter meetings, the Business Jam events will give agency owners, directors and senior managers the opportunity to get together on a monthly basis to share ideas, insights, knowledge and experiences to make great things happen in their agency businesses, while also benefiting from the insights of business experts and entrepreneurs who have been there and done it.
The sessions combine highly experienced and relevant speaker sessions, panel discussions with agency experts, Q&A’s with agency owners, Hot Seat advisory sessions and the opportunity to network and talk face to face in a relaxed environment with compatible agency entrepreneurs. With a drink in one hand and a notepad in the other, guests will be inspired to explore different options within their business and take their agency to new heights.
Every Business Jam will conclude with an informal networking session where attendees can chat over drinks, share their own experiences and insights with others and develop mutually beneficial business relationships.
Richard Draycott, managing director of The Drum Network, said: “Our Business Jams will be must attend events for our members and all ambitious agency owners. They will be high energy, dynamic and as interactive and inclusive as we can make them. We have always believed that the best business events are the ones where people come together and share their own experiences for the good of all involved. It’s great to hear the theories on building a highly profitable business, but it is even more beneficial to see how those theories have been put into practice in the real world by other similar agencies.
“We believe that our Business Jams will put a new spin on learning how to build the most profitable agency business and will form an incredibly valuable part of the Drum Network membership package.”
Each Business Jam will be themed around a specific agency-related topic ranging from how to increase turnover to how to manage growth, right through to how to expand globally and how to manage agency growth effectively.
The Drum Network’s Elite members will each receive three tickets per Business Jam, while Premium members will receive two tickets. Non-members can also purchase tickets and should they sign up to a membership package will be able to receive a rebate on their Business Jam tickets.
The first Business Jam takes place from 12.30pm on Wednesday 21st September at The Looking Glass in Shoreditch and the topic will be how to dramatically increase your agency turnover.
