I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.

Hello! Curious if anyone has any thoughts on new year new business resolutions. Maybe it’s the fact that 2020 sucks but I’m already planning for the new year. I’m going to try and schedule time better for outreach and social media marketing. I tend to be too reactionary with my time.

Fishies, I am hiring a partner in crime to help me introduce PETERMAYER to the national stage. This isn't your typical biz dev role - it's designed to be a hybrid/cross-discipline role for someone who wants to use their full creative, strategic brain and most definitely NOT stay in their lane. Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)

I’ve seen a lot of agencies bring in freelancers for new business work (either production or concept creating). Would you ever consider bringing in a new business consultant or pitch expert?


I’ve been working on a pitch that continues to get delayed and it’s poorly managed. The RFI was due in July. Then days AFTER submission I received an email from the consultant saying we now had until August. End of September rolls around and frankly I had forgotten about this 100-page beast. They want a meet and greet….the following week. The day before the meet and greet we get a list of questions (that aren’t easy softballs). Now 2 weeks later and nothing. What a gross feeling this process is

What is the pandemic version of "let's grab coffee". as a biz dev person I am struggling with how to make that initial connection. I offer up calls and/or zooms. Let us know if you have a good tip on how to break the ice with new biz/ get new potential clients interested.


I find myself looking for a new role in agency / production company biz dev. I co-founded a creative production agency back in 2010. Grew it to a staff of 80 FTE, creating strategic content-driven campaigns for brands, tv networks, streamers, platforms, publishers etc. We developed and produced original TV as well. Around 2016 we positioned the company for sale and then sold in Jan 2019. After going over to the acquirer in 2020, I’m now free for the first time in a long time. What to do?


Hi all! First : shout out to the folks who sold the super bowl clients! Question for all. What tools are you using for biz dev? For finding clients specifically. We are a video production house so our needs may be different but we want to grow direct to client work as well. I know of winmo, agency access and agency source. Any other online tools you are using? Thanks!
