    58:25

    Today's episode will be particularly beneficial for you if you're an agency owner looking to grow. I chat to ‘Agencynomics’ co-author, Peter Hoole, about some common challenges faced by agency owners today, when it comes to business growth. We also talk about: • the importance of looking at your team's skill set to make sure everyone's sitting in the right seats • what point in the agency's revenue growth does an agency typically employ their first account manager? • And the implications of having a hybrid account manager (someone who plays the combined account manager and project manager role, versus keeping the roles separate) Peter shares so many tips and lots of value during this interview. Don't forget to grab a copy of the book ‘Agencynomics’. I really don't know any agency owner who hasn't said it was a brilliant read. If you're an agency owner, and you want more certainty on your forecast when it comes to existing client growth, or you're an ambitious account manager who wants to know how to grow a client account, without being pushy and salesy, then my nine week Account Accelerator programme might be for you.

    The Art of Client Service, with Robert Solomon

    58:20

    Welcome to Episode 46, with Robert Solomon. He's the author of the must read book for anyone in agency account management, 'The Art of Client Service'. In this chat, we talked about: - why there are fewer account managers doing more with much less experience - why some people believe the account manager role is becoming extinct and what we both think about that - and why often the work of great account management isn't recognised.

He also shared some top tips from his many years working in account management. I hope you enjoy this chat with Richard.
