Terms & Conditions

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.
