Understanding Agency Finance

About the course


Understanding how agencies make and lose money is an essential element of career growth for young advertising practitioners.

This workshop teaches the skills you need to become a financial superstar and how you can individually contribute to the financial success of your agency and earn the respect of your colleagues and clients. Great financial acumen leads to more autonomy, provides the conditions in which great work can be created, and is the first step towards being taken seriously in the boardroom.

Led by Simon Lendrum, CEO of The Comms Council, this interactive course will provide the foundations of what is required to enable financial success.
