      Back by popular demand, IIANC Sparks! is designed to help "spark" the next big idea for your agency!

  SUPER SESSION: Beyond Best Practices - Becoming an Agency of the Future
  Speaker: Steve Anderson

Best practices are tools agencies use to gauge how their operation compares to other similar agencies by looking at what’s worked in the past. Looking at past successes no longer guarantees future success. How we sell, market, communicate, collaborate, innovate, and learn are changing faster than ever. Going beyond best practices helps agencies learn how to look ahead at what will be successful as they test, experiment, fail, learn, and get better at creating an excellent customer experience. Agencies that are willing to look ahead will be the top agencies of the future. A Beyond Best Practice Agency is not satisfied with being in the top 25%; they strive to be in the top 1% and are the leaders that other agencies follow. Are you ready?
