THE EFFECTIVE ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE

NEXT WORKSHOP - 1st April 2019

If you’re in your early years at an agency, this course will help you become a well-organised account handler who can easily handle multiple accounts and tasks. You’ll learn to be more productive, communicate professionally with clients and meet your managers’ expectations.

We’ll raise your awareness of how your daily tasks affect overall communications and show you processes that increase the quality of your work and make your job easier. This is an intensive one-day workshop run by an agency veteran who regularly collaborates with all levels of agency staff.

The one-day account executive course uses practical activities to teach theory and techniques. Expect group work, planning exercises, games, frank discussions and individual coaching. We limit the workshop to eight people so everyone gets the most from the coach.

You'll find yourself working on real issues alongside people like you - not just listening to a trainer.

Bullet-point heavy lectures are banned. We choose active, visual and interesting methods when presenting information.

Fun helps you learn, so we incorporate theory into activities and games. You may even get to play with lego.
