Darryl Salerno, president of Second Quadrant Solutions, will help agency leaders understand critical numbers behind the agency's financials: what you need to track, what those numbers should be and how to make corrections when you're off balance. He will discuss how to engage clients as partners to ensure compensation is commensurate with work produced.
In this session, you will learn about engaging topics, such as:

  • Understanding the critical ratios that drive a healthy agency.
  • Controlling over-servicing.
  • Managing retainers more effectively.
