The massive migration to digital in 2020 catapulted us years into the future in just a few months. Customer behaviors and mindsets have changed and are now in constant flux – they’re no longer predictable. Amidst all that change, marketers want to know: What’s the right op model for our brand?

This session will answer those questions and more with a sneak peek at our upcoming research that identified a segment of top-performing marketers and the ways they drive double-digit revenue growth.

THE UN-HOUSE AGENCY

Whether you are building an in-house agency by laying a new foundation or are working to remodel and reimagine your existing structure – relationships are essential. However, an in-house agency is only as effective as the people within its structure – and structure alone can’t solve it all. Amina Dilawari, senior director, integrated marketing, and Michael Rowland, senior director, creative services, will share how they are letting go of traditional ways of working to build a more collaborative and effective approach.

HOW ADT CRACKED THE SOCIAL CODE AND GREW ITS IN-HOUSE TEAM

Social and Content Marketing during the pandemic required many marketers to pivot and redefine what success looks like. ADT's social and content calendar was planned three months in advance, but the global pandemic changed the world as we knew it and pre-planned content was no longer relevant. ADT's digital brand team quickly pivoted into a real-time value exchange strategy that taps into what people come to social to do: engage, converse, and share. This new holistic content, social, and paid strategy led to continuously record-breaking months -- and the need to grow the team to support all of the manual work across real-time content ideation, social execution, and media optimizations.

IN-HOUSE DOESN'T DEFINE YOU, YOUR CULTURE DOES: THREE STEPS TO EVOLVING BEYOND THE STIGMA

For years, the perception of an in-house agency is that they are both owned and driven by the parent company. And regardless of the caliber of work you produce, it still comes with an asterisk. Times are changing and in-house agencies and production companies are on a steep rise. And while they are becoming more the norm, they are still challenged with evolving beyond the stigma. Four years ago, Innocean Worldwide, owned by Hyundai Motor Group, acquired creative agency David&Goliath. But it wasn't just the work that excited them. It was the agency’s distinct culture, strong sense of purpose and the people who drive it that prompted the agency’s evolution. Join David Angelo, founder and creative chairman of David&Goliath as he shares how to keep your agency brand thriving, relevant and ever-evolving when in-house.

IN-HOUSING FOR SPEED AND RELEVANCY: LESSONS LEARNED OVER A 5 YEAR JOURNEY

Five years ago, the PGA TOUR Marketing team started with a clean sheet of paper and asked ourselves one key question: What would it take to be able to execute at the speed and frequency that our fans expect in today’s world? That question became the beginning of a 5-year journey during which the TOUR in-housed the majority of its creative and media agency needs, transforming the PGA TOUR from a traditional client/agency approach to one of the leading innovators in professional sports marketing. Tom Kuhn, vice president of marketing, will share some of the key lessons learned along the way and what’s next for the TOUR in the continuing evolution of their in-house capability.

FROM 'BRAND POLICE' TO STRATEGIC ADVISERS

Brand in professional services is clearly important, particularly with PwC being one of the 'Big 4', and with an ever evolving organization so too is the need for an ever evolving brand positioning and identity. It's also important that brand is embedded throughout the organization so it's people understand their role in amplifying and protecting it. We track this evolution through PwC’s history and how the in-house team managed to change perceptions and restore pride in the brand.

REPLAY WITH LIVE Q&A: FROM OUT-HOUSE TO IN-HOUSE: WHY THE TRANSITION DOESN’T STINK

Back by popular demand, we will replay Todd Miller’s session from last year’s conference. He will join us afterwards for live Q&A! The transition from big-time ad agency executive creative director to the brand side can be fraught with apprehension, at best, and endless second-guessing, at worst. After all, the move is often mistakenly associated with the winding down of a career. Like our industry, however, things evolve. And that’s good. We learn that creativity can’t be confined. Nor does it require patterned walls or purple furniture. Award-winning leader Todd Miller shares his journey from the outside in. He includes his experience on how embracing the full potential of the in-house model can not only successfully advance the quality of the work; but recruit an A-list team, build better client relationships, and straight-out improve creatives’ lives.
