Evolve or Die: The Traditional Agency Revolution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The traditional advertising agency model is undergoing an evolution—and it involves the close scrutiny of the vaunted agency creative department. Impacted by technology, pop culture and counter culture and facing challenges and critiques related to their size, speed and sheer number of employees, the big brand agencies are attempting to reimagine their very foundation: the traditional agency creative department. Process, roles, disciplines or structure, each agency is experimenting and iterating how creative is conceived and executed. Hear from the ad men and women who are charged with driving change within these agencies, and learn about what they see for the future of the big agency.
