Joining the ranks of those being laid off due to Covid, I’m now looking to go freelance. Having worked as an Agency Producer my entire career, but jobs now being scarce I’m looking to broaden my horizon and also seek work in Production Companies.
For those of you who are doing both, or did the switch, what did you find most different or challenging going from Agency to Production Company side? Was there anything that threw you off or that you hadn’t anticipated? Any regrets? Pitfalls to avoid?

MBB fish, out or curiosity, do you also have an exorbitant amount of governance / fictive roles? Examples: we have sector leads, functional leads, solution leads, regional leads, office leads, regional sector leads, regional function leads, and the list goes on with tons of internal ‚practice development‘ roles.
