Sage advice for creating and running an excellent agency

Mumbrella SAGE, the premier conference for independent agencies, SMEs and their leaders has been run for another year. The program was filled with inspirational stories of growth and challenges, how-to guides for building better and stronger agencies, and intimate workshops that delivered help and advice on specific topics relevant to growing businesses. Headline international speakers Jinn Powprapai of CJ Worx, Alistair Angus of SI Partners and Samantha Ramlu of Method provided hilarious, engaging and informative sessions while Darren Woolley rounded out the day with a one-of-a-kind gameshow based around the pitch. It was standing room only at times, showing just how passionate Australian independent agency leaders and their staff are.

We're all so busy working in our businesses, it's a great reminder to take a step back and look at the big picture! A great way to kick off the agency's annual planning.

The atmosphere was awesome, I understood the gaps in my knowledge and met a few people who could help me to bridge that. All in all 100% value for time spent.

It was great to gain access and insights specifically relating to growing an agency with a stronger business skew. The event provided a great opportunity to measure the progress of our brand against something, and also provided some great ideas to introduce in our business.

It’s been fantastic - there’s a lot of energy in the room. I’ve been at SAGE for a few years now and each time it does get better.

The range of speakers that we’ve had today, and the topics they’ve covered, have been of a great insight and great value.
