How it works

Agency Bites is an exclusive series of online events that bring together groups of agency owners to discuss a particular topic, where they can learn from and support each other. Join us.

Who’s it for?
  • Ambitious agency owners or Managing Directors
  • We split the sessions by turnover size, with some groups for those with a turnover over £1m and some for those under £1m.
  • People willing to share. Our events are interactive

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 an Agency Bites session with Rory. I had 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!

Solve the biggest new business challenges

Winning new business is the number one challenge for agencies right now. In the last 12 months, at every stage of the sales process, things have got tougher. Agencies are reporting fewer leads, smaller client budgets, and increased delays in making decisions. 

These tough trading conditions mean that it’s more important than ever to tune up your sales engine to increase your chances of sales success. Agencies across the land are increasingly focused on the time and money they invest in new business, what works (and what doesn’t), the key metrics to measure, and the levers to pull to win more new business. 

Thanks to BenchPress, we now have more of these insights than ever before. We’ll share them with you at these events. 

During these Agency Bites sessions, we’ll explore:

  • What the latest new business benchmarks mean for your size of agency
  • How to ensure you have enough activity to give you the leads you need
  • The best ways to find bigger clients with bigger budgets
  • Tricks to manage your sales pipeline effectively to get deals over the line
  • How to avoid deals stalling (and how to react if they do)

We'll be splitting the sessions by turnover size, to ensure you're grouped with others relevant to your stage of business.

For agencies with a turnover of £1m+, sign up for Wednesday 5th June or Tuesday 11th June

For those with a turnover of under £1m, sign up for Tuesday 4th June or Wednesday 12th June

Note these are all interactive workshops (cameras and microphones will be on). Please ensure that you’re ready to participate in this way on the day. Thank you.
