I. WELCOME (11:00 – 11:05AM ET)

II. IN-HOUSING AT T-MOBILE: A STORY OF TRANSFORMATION AND VALUE CREATION (11:05 – 11:40AM ET)
When T-Mobile set out to bring its paid media in-house, they approached the challenge with two main objectives: build a best-in-class digital team and create a more efficient operating model. T-Mobile realized that, besides assessing processes and operational factors for media management, building the foundation of a supportive, transparent culture would be central to establishing a best-in-class digital team.

In this session, T-Mobile and in-housing consulting partner Media.Monks will speak on how they created an in-housing strategy and executed a smooth transition through collaboration based on openness, flexibility, and an unparalleled focus on people. This in-housing model has not only delivered on the two main objectives outlined above, but importantly has also created a culture of transparency and trust that has gained attention throughout the T-Mobile organization.

Speakers:
Evan Barocas, Senior Director, Digital Media - T-Mobile
Travis Groves, Sr. Director, Media Operations – Media.Monks
