Congrats! Question about going client side: do you need a broader skill set than one would have from being a creative at traditional ad agencies all their career? Meaning do you need more knowledge of marketing or analytics?

like

Nah. Some different things but not necessarily more broad. Guess it depends how one operates. In both environments you can be pretty broad and/or deep.

Just started client side as Covid hit. Still relatively new to it but it does feel great after being in the ad world for over 20 years.

On a 2 person team - myself and an analyst ~9 week project. This analyst is newer (7 months in) but they’re just not cutting it. I’m really trying to be patient and coach, but they are unreachable for long stretches of time, even in person they will disappear for an hour at a time during the day (multiple times) and complete tasks late or rushed.

Have given feedback and setting up time to address expectations. But growing concerned that this might be a bigger risk given that we have a fast pace

My project has almost entirely replaced slides with bulleted lists and outlines, even for client conversations. Its amazing. Saves a ton of time, and feels so much more substantive. Why is the industry so resistant to this? Trying to avoid the obvious cynical conclusion that “fancy slides let you hide mediocre content behind a bunch of sizzle. ”
