engaging monthly events for
budding aGENcy leaders
LeaderLab lets you develop your agency’s crucial ‘second-tier’ of leadership – with live events that leave them buzzing with new ideas.
Your people can join an event each month with insightful presentations and the chance to swap ideas with other up-and-coming agency leaders.
Each month we explore a different aspect of running a successful agency. Topics cover agency marketing, culture and client services, as well as important ‘soft skills’ like leadership and negotiation.

Guest agency speakers on interesting and useful topics.
Peer-to-peer support: delegates table a problem, and we tackle it as a collective.

Working Better Together: Internal Communication for Growing Agencies
October 31st 2019
Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart said internal communication was central to his firm’s success. “What good is figuring out a better way to sell beach towels if you aren't going to tell everybody about it?”
How well your agency works is often determined by how well you communicate.
In this session we’ll look at the best ways to ‘join the dots’ in your agency – and keep everyone on the same page even when you’re working on different things.
Emma will lead a session looking at:
How do you communicate in a growing organisation?
Who is “responsible” for internal communication?
What are your responsibilities as a line manager?
This is a really interesting topic – it’s a great one for growing agencies to be thinking about.
where we meet
LeaderLab meetings happen in A_SPACE, a relaxed venue in a converted Georgian town house near Angel station in London.
We picked this space because it’s bright and creative, and it’s flexible enough to allow for a blend of group presentations and smaller intimate breakout groups.
At LeaderLab your agency’s leaders can step away from their role for the day to sharpen their blade and rekindle their enthusiasm.
Why does LeaderLab exist?
I’ve met hundreds of agency leaders through running Agency Hackers. One thing I’ve noticed is this: keeping your ‘second tier’ employees motivated and supported is a never-ending project.
When you run a busy agency you don’t always have the internal infrastructure to develop people properly. It’s one of those gnawing things you’re always aware that you could be doing better.
So after talking to lots of agency owners, I developed LeaderLab. It’s a “set and forget” way to make sure that the people who are important to your agency are always being developed and motivated, no matter what lands on your plate.
