Learning and Development for Agencies

Agency Squared helps agency owners and senior leaders to Survive, Thrive and Exit. We’ve been there. Our team has built, sold, grown, downsized and failed at running agencies.

Read on below to find out how we can help you to develop your agency.

  • Training

    Invest in your biggest asset: your team.

    When running an agency, it’s essential you invest in training your team. But don’t forget your personal development too. There’s a lot to do when you lead an agency and it pays to stay on top of the latest thinking when it comes to business development, understanding the finances or building a great culture. Our two most popular courses are The Art of the Pitch and Pitch Perfect. These courses are designed to help agencies win more pitches and to develop your team members into confident communicators.

  • Masterminds

    Grow together with your peers

    Running an agency means making decisions-lots of them. But, as an agency leader, sometimes you are on your own. Imagine if there was another way, a better way. We’re on a mission to create that with our Masterminds. As the owner or leader of an agency, you are responsible for all of the significant decision making. When to hire, which clients to focus on, what services to pitch, who to pitch, where to locate your office, when to fire etc. the list is endless. But, the chances of you having a board of directors to help with that decision making are slim. Joining an Agency Squared Mastermind Boardroom o meet with your peers, work together, to solve problems and make decisions, and to grow your agency in a confidential environment.
