Business Dam: Make your agency famous (Amsterdam)

Thursday, April 20, 2017 - 18:00 to 20:00

Want to make your agency rich and famous? The Drum Network are coming to Amsterdam, the city of inspiration, tulips, canals and wheels (bike and cheese) and we want to meet you! Come along and find out how to create the ultimate value agency, giving you the edge over your competitors.

First up, welkom! from The Drum Network

Running an independent agency has always been difficult, competing with the likes of network agencies who often have much bigger marketing budgets. The Drum Network team believe that there is no better way of understanding how to grow and get ahead of the game than learning it from the very people who are living it. 

Next up, best dressed – A guide to making your agency the hottest prospect in town

Amsterdam has always been an undisputed hotbox of amazing creative talent. As global acquirers focus on key European cities where strong talent pools reside, we anticipate an upsurge in merger and acquisition activity in this fantastic city.

One of the toughest hurdles to overcome today is to stand out from the crowd. So, what does this mean for your agency if you are thinking of realising value? It means you have to be first up and best dressed, that’s what.

So we ask you to finish your "coffee and pancake" and come and listen to Green Square’s Tony Walford talk about his predictions for agency M&A in 2017. He will cover what acquirers find most attractive in an agency, how to make sure you stand out from the crowd and maximise your value on a sale, and make your agency famous!

Meet our speaker, Tony Walford, partner at Green Square

Green Square is a leading London and New York based M&A boutique specialising in marketing communications, media and martech businesses. Tony brings a unique perspective on the M&A process, having built and sold his own agency group, and thus can speak from first-hand experience on how to maximise value. Green Square is a breath of fresh air in the stuffy world of corporate finance. The vast majority of clients are via referral, reflecting the professional and user-friendly experience Green Square provides.
