I. WELCOME (11:00am – 11:10am ET)

II. MEMBER DISCUSSION: BUILDING BETTER BRIEFS (11:10am – 11:30am ET)
One of the benefits of ANA Committees is the ability to share and learn from your fellow marketers in a "closed door" environment, leveraging knowledge and insights from peers that can be applied to your own business. Often times, marketers are faced with similar challenges. In this session, we'll discuss the topic of the function of building better briefs. 

III. PIVOT! AND CARRY ON: HOW WALGREENS AND WPP LEVERAGED THEIR RENEWED RELATIONSHIP TO MARKET WITH IMPACT DURING COVID (11:30am – 12:10pm ET)
Walgreens and their agency partners at WPP will talk about the importance of strong client-agency relationships and the impact they have had on a brand's ability to market during the year of the pandemic. Leaning on their renewed partnership, they will discuss the importance of transparency, trust, "real talk," and the willingness to "PIVOT!" (and pivot some more) in order to make great work that worked.
