The ICA’s goal is to assist your team with realizing a maximum return on investment from your talent development budgets.

  • Value-Based Pricing Strategies
    This presentation explores the why and how of value-based pricing. We deconstruct the theory and clearly lay out how to build proposals, why to use options and how to master the pricing conversation with clients and procurement.
  • Selling Your Agency’s Value
    This presentation dives into how clients buy professional creative services and reminds client-facing departments that their job is to sell. Although the moniker of salesperson may not be the best fit for our industry, we explore how we can and should influence clients and what we need to do to own the role of consultant, sell our value and ultimately be the client’s “first call.”
  • Moving Your Team from Account Service to Account Leadership
    Account Service has been steadily devolving into a Customer Service department, one that focusses on the “wants” of the client rather than on their “needs.” This session explores the elements of value conversations – those robust, candid and sometimes uncomfortable conversations – that establish trust and elevate the agency and the team as valued partners always putting the client’s best interests first.
