Welcome to Planner Parley, the show where we come together under a flag of truce to talk about the challenges and triumphs of small-agency planning. Planner Parley is brought to you by the 4A’s (The American Association of Advertising Agencies).

In this week’s episode, our panel shared – and shared about sharing – as they let us behind the scenes of agency leadership and creating culture. They defined the strategy wallow pit, provided tips on how to stay out of it, and, instead, taught ways to shoot from the heart, be playful, and stay mischievous. Join our guests, Mark Pollard, strategy CEO at Mighty Jungle in New York City, Julian Cole, strategy consultant joining from Melbourne, Australia, and, of course, John Roberts, CSO of Truth Collective in Rochester, NY, as they reveal new ways of looking at the things you look at all the time, and what it means for small agencies. Pull up a chair and listen in.

Key Takeaways:

  • See it, do it, teach it
  • Take the work seriously, take yourself less seriously
  • Dare to be mischievous
  • Prove it
