The treehouse

• Join 50 agency leaders for an afternoon of idea-sharing and problem solving
• Hang out in a secret Shoreditch treehouse loft
• Friday May 3rd / 1.30pm – 5pm / Shoreditch Treehouse, EC2A

When you run an agency, the best people to learn from are other successful agency leaders.

That’s why we’re gathering the Agency Hackers community for an afternoon of ideas-sharing and “show and tell” – in a secret “treehouse loft” in the heart of Shoreditch.

You will meet agency leaders with practical, original things to share about systems, agency growth, processes, staying focused and more.

This is a great opportunity to step away from your business for the afternoon, mix with like-minded agency leaders, and pick up some new ideas to inspire you and inform your thinking.

Some of the ideas you’ll hear

Line-up subject to change. (It probably won’t, though.)

Verb Brands  founder  Chris Donnelly  found the ultimate way to beat stress: he made  one of his team  the boss! We’ll be talking to Chris about how to structure a team and set employee’s objectives so that your time is free to focus on what’s next for your agency.

Base Creative  MD  Iain Scott  will explain how his team has overhauled the way they work, hire, and go to market. Iain will share how they  visually map  opportunities, how they  sort  good clients from bad clients, AND he’ll show you his new  ‘client experience playbook’ . (If you don’t get one great idea from this, you were asleep.)

Nalla’s  CEO  Vicki Young    will talk about how she’s  upskilled her team  to shoulder responsibilities that previously always fell to her:  pitches ,  negotiations , and dealing with  key clients . Very useful if you’re a leader keen to remove yourself as a bottleneck.

We’ll be talking agency culture with  Matter of Form  CEO  Anant Sharma . Agencies often try to enforce one culture across their business, but MOF has decided to let different cultures co-exist. We’ll be talking to Anant about MOF’s unique approach to values and culture.

What is this thing? How does it work?

The vibe is structured but informal. We invite everybody to chip in when they have something useful to add.

  1. It’s an interactive “show and tell”. Agency leaders who’ve done interesting things tell you about what they’ve learned. Each person’s session lasts for about 30 minutes.

  2. You get to contribute and ask questions! Agency Hackers events attract a very relaxed, friendly crowd. We encourage a “coffee house” vibe – people will pipe up and chip in when they have something to contribute.

  3. We will introduce you to other people you’d like to meet. Ahead of the event we’ll send around a survey that will help us ‘matchmake’ introductions.

  4. You get to hang in a very interesting venue. This event takes place in the Shoreditch Treehouse – a bonkers penthouse ‘treehouse’ in the middle of Shoreditch. (Keira Knightley used to live there!) It’s tucked away off Charlotte Road. We’ll share the exact address when you book.

So anyway, this time I’m not wearing this shirt.

  • The event starts at 1.30pm and runs until about 5pm.

  • You have to be an agency leader to come. Very sorry, but because of limited space this one isn’t open to consultants or coaches. Sorry again!

  • Be aware that the venue is up a flight of stairs. Unfortunately, there’s no lift access.

  • Finally, please don’t wear heels! 👠 This venue has a special floor and heels mark it, apparently. (If you do wear heels we’ll lend you heel protectors!)
