THE COCA-COLA COMPANY'S VALUE-BASED COMPENSATION MODEL
The Coca-Cola Company made headlines earlier in the year with the announcement of its new value-based agency compensation model.  This model was inspired by the company's commitment to integrated marketing communications and has benefited from the input of cross-functional teams and agency partners around the world.  The Coca-Cola Company's value-based approach was built on the underlying belief that "number of hours should not define value" and aligns the economic incentives of agency and client by focusing both parties on outcomes instead of inputs.

AGENCY KEYNOTE: JEFF GOODBY ON THE NEW DIGITAL WORLD
Jeff Goodby is one of this era's few truly iconic admen.  He co-founded Goodby, Silverstein & Partners some twenty-five years ago and has helped build one of the industry's most creative and successful agencies.  In recent years, the agency has turned its digital capabilities from a weakness into a strength and has been recognized by industry experts as digital agency of the year (Advertising Age) and interactive agency of the year (One Show).   Jeff will offer advice to both clients and agencies for making a successful transition into the new digital world, with practical tips (have a Facebook page!) and examples.

REINVENTING THE CLIENT/AGENCY RELATIONSHIP FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Hyatt is the business of hospitality, not hotels, a position that is captured by the brand’s theme line, “You’re more than welcome.” In August 2008, BBDO New York was selected as the agency for Hyatt’s first global advertising campaign. Since then, Hyatt and BBDO have realized marketplace success during the teeth of the recession by approaching their relationship the same way that Hyatt approaches its business – from the inside out – creating a hospitality that is generous, genuine, intuitive and respectful, opening doors to new places they’ve never been. The result: the brand has been reintroduced through a collaborative and integrated communications model which does not rely on typical spend; which is more open, more curious, more enlightened and more enlivened. And which is completely managed by BBDO across all communication disciplines.

BEST PRACTICES IN AGENCY PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS
Agency performance evaluations are a critical tool to help both marketers and agencies assess their relationships, improve performance and identify potential problems.  There are multiple benefits provided by agency performance evaluations-to establish goals and priorities and to ensure the agency's performance is being measured and held accountable; to identify what's working and what's not and take corrective action on issues; to benchmark agency performance and contributions and assess progress over time and against other roster agencies; to provide an important component for measuring and determining performance incentive rewards.  This panel of experts will discuss best practices in evaluations-including what's new and innovative-and will comment on a new ANA survey that provides a benchmark on current marketer use of agency performance evaluations.

WHO OWNS SOCIAL MEDIA?
Social media has exploded. According to a recent ANA study, 66% of marketers are now using social media to reach their customers—leaping from 20% just two years ago. Various agency types have been staking their claims as social media experts—public relations agencies, “traditional” advertising agencies, and digital ad agencies. This panel will explore the options and tradeoffs available to marketers as well as best practices for integrating social media into the broader communications mix.
