In 2013, Prudential received the coveted recognition of being the In-House Agency of the Year from IHAF. But, this was not their only accolade in the marketplace, as they also won the Gold Midas Award for Best Use of Social Media in the U.S. Their approach drives tangible business results, high satisfaction ratings from their internal clients, and helped build a #1 ranking in unaided brand awareness among their competitor set. In this session, Prudential will discuss how they achieved the recognition for their work, as well as the success of their Bring Your Challenges campaign.

II. GODIVA: AN IN-HOUSE CHOCOLATIER'S DREAM (10:00-10:30AM)
When you think of Godiva, you think of a global leader in premium chocolates. If you work at Godiva's in-house agency, you might be working on projects to promote Chocolate Truffles, Gourmet Biscuits, or Coffee & Cocoa. And as much as the smell and taste of chocolate may inspire creative genius, there is still a need to motivate and get the best out of the in-house team. Carole Irgang, Consultant – Godiva Chocolatier, Inc. will share some of the company's current work and provide best practices on how they motivate and inspire their in-house talent.

Adweek ran an article in their June 10th issue about how larger brands are expanding their use of in-house advertising technology. Brands such as Geico and Netflix are developing their own in-house programmatic buying tools while others are working with ad-technology companies to handle their own data management. In this session, we will ask ANA members to share how they manage programmatic buying and/or data management at their organizations along with the key benefits and disadvantages of taking this in-house.

VI. TUNING-IN TO CHANGE (1:30-2:30PM)
What do in-house agencies and broadcast television have in common? Both have changed tremendously over the past five years—with in-house agencies on the rise and in-home viewing (at least as we knew it) on the decline. Through a mix of data sharing from recent field studies published by IHAF and storytelling from her own experiences at Discovery Communications, Jennifer Cortner, Chairman of the Board of Directors – In-House Agency Forum (IHAF) will discuss how successful in-house teams are embracing change, enabling them to deliver relevance and results to their clients.
