Welcome back to the first quarter of the year. We have some really exciting things planned, including upcoming events (both in person and virtually), as well as key dates for the year.
Our first in person event of 2022 takes place in just a few weeks and is exactly the workshop you need to kick off your business year with success as your focus:
New Year, New Business, A New Way
When: Wednesday 26th January, 5:30pm – 7:00pm
Where: London venue, TBC
The creative sector is currently experiencing a huge shift in the way clients engage with agencies. This presents many challenges, and opportunities, for agencies. How can agencies gain an advantage to succeed in this changing landscape? Is there now a way for your agency to grow more effectively?
Join Rob King, Founder at The Client Key, for a focussed workshop looking at how to deliver more effective new business and sales campaigns – specifically for creative agencies. The workshop will be structured around the following steps to grow your agency:
1. Brand Proposition – how to deliver a clear simple message that clients understand.
2. Client Audit – understanding who are the right ones for your business.
3. Engagement – the best way to find and engage prospects, across lead generation and client conversations.
4. Acquisition – how to effectively win them as clients.
5. Listen & Learn – improving your process to create a self-sustaining new business engine in your agency. See you there!
Tickets are available here.
Following that, we have our first virtual event of the year, a roundtable which is taking place online and which will investigate the top line findings jfdi and Opinium’s latest ‘New Business Barometer’ report. Find out more and register for your free place below:
New Business Barometer Roundtable with jfdi and Opinium
When: Tuesday 1st February, 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
Recently we teamed up with jfdi and Opinium to help them create their annual ‘New Business Barometer’ report. All EVCOM members are invited to attend an exclusive virtual round table to discuss the top line findings and discuss industry issues that might impact your new business strategy planning. This will be held on Tuesday 1st Feb at 2.30pm for one hour. We will forward you the dial in details in due course.
Some of our membership completed the survey which means they are eligible to receive the free full report. As an additional ‘thank you’ from jfdi, those members that completed the survey are also eligible to receive the free full report. Completers will be entitled to the full report and everyone else, a summarised version. We are particularly excited that of the 7 winners of a new business training session (one name was drawn every week), two were from our membership. Congratulations to Kath Wallace and Andrew Smith.
The report is highly detailed and will provide agencies with valuable insights to help turbo charge new business strategies. A short 7 mins time investment is all that is required to be able to access such unique support. We plan to do this again next year and hope many more of you will participate so that we can help grow the businesses in our membership.

Entries for the EVCOM Clarion Awards also open at the beginning of February, so January is the perfect time to start thinking about the work you’ve made in the last year. We are calling for work across the live and film spheres that has a cause-driven focus, and we hope to celebrate yours! Find out about the EVCOM Clarion Awards here.
For all other upcoming events, we will be releasing tickets and registration slots closer to each of the events. Please note that this programme is subject to change. Please visit the EVCOM website here for the most up to date calendar.
