Great conversation

Great conversation

Discuss and learn from other amazing agency owners. A big part of what makes Agency Bites so special is the agency owners we’re able to bring together. We connect people that have something in common – whether it’s their location, size of the agency, or the challenges they’re facing.

Top insights

Top insights

As well as working with hundreds of agencies, we also run the largest survey of independent agency owners in the UK – BenchPress. Run annually, the survey and report highlight key trends, stats and averages for agency owners to benchmark their performance. Join us at Agency Bites to hear the very latest findings from BenchPress.

The best start to your day

The best start to your day

Our events are normally in the morning, giving you a chance to start your day with a dose of inspiration. We find doing them in the morning means you’ve got a clearer head and you’re less likely to get pulled into the day-to-day running of your agency. We suggest blocking some time out immediately after to digest what you’ve learned and turn your ideas into actions.

What other people say

I was fortunate to be invited to breakfast with Rory. I arrived for what was a thoroughly fascinating morning. Left and spent the next 48hrs completely re-jigging and re-framing my sales funnel. So much gain and insight. A great way to start the morning!

Current topic - How to win super profitable clients

Ten years of benchmarking agencies has brought us incredible insights. Over that time, we've seen trends shift and evolve - while others stay the course. Our latest series of Agency Bites events dives deeper, and explores the one topic which has stayed front of mind since we first started BenchPress back in 2012 - New Business.

We're excited to share the latest benchmarks on this very topic - and more specifically, how to win more profitable clients. 

We'll be discussing:

  • Tips to avoid starting off on the back foot
  • Playing the pricing game
  • Adapting your sales process and prospecting strategy
  • Putting your most profitable services in the shop window
  • The importance of tracking profitability by client / department / service
