Don't Just Make the Logo Bigger

What if your marketing organization ran smoothly and profitably? It starts by finding ways to satisfy your most-demanding clients. Agency advisor Karl Sakas (@KarlSakas) from Sakas & Company will share how to make work more fun and less stressful, whether you work with external or internal clients.

In this session you will learn:
1. What your clients really want from you… even when they have trouble communicating.
2. A simple yet powerful process to say “no” when clients want you to say “yes.”
3. The shortcut that helps you get powerful intel to prevent problems before things start.

Karl has worked with hundreds of clients over the past 20 years. He’s worked at agencies, in-house, and as a freelancer. His clients have included small businesses, large corporations, non-profits, and even an Olympic athlete. Today, he works exclusively with digital agency owners. His engaging luncheon keynote includes Q&A time to answer your questions about how to get what you want from your clients. Thanks to AAF Madison, you’ll go back to the office with plenty of concrete ideas to make your job easier immediately!
