Hi there. Interested to know if Mirren is a resource you all use. Curious about it but it’s expensive. Any input is appreciated

I think going to their conference every other year is very inspiring and helpful. But I think as long as you have one of the traditional lead generators - mirren, Winmo, etc they tend to duplicate themselves. If you’re relatively new to business development their training tools are also really helpful

Thanks for the input! I’m pretty new to agency biz dev but previously handled new biz for a commercial production company and repped directors. It has been an interesting transition. Learning a lot but the sales cycle is incredibly long and we aren’t using a lead generator. So I’m exploring some of those options. Looked into Winmo also.

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.)
