FX October 28th Luncheon – Suits vs. Creatives


Suits vs. Creatives: Battleground to Higher Ground

Things don’t always go as planned – especially in advertising. It’s just the nature of the business. We all know conflicts can arise between clients and creatives when a deadline is looming, and the work was due “yesterday.”

Help is on the way, though! Our October program speaker and fellow FX member, Cami Travis-Groves has developed fail-proof, step-by-step ways to help diffuse conflicts and move forward with solutions that both suits and creatives can live with.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Diffuse emotions that run high during conflicts
  • Remain in control with objectives clearly defined for all involved
  • Find solutions that everyone can agree on

We all need better tools to resolve conflicts and keep our clients satisfied and coming back for more. Be sure to bring your questions, as there will be time for Q&A after the presentation.

Mark your calendar now and plan to join us on Friday, October 28th.

You don’t want to miss this program!
