Thank you for booking your spot at our online event 'Agencies...Keep calm and carry on' on 7th April 2020 at 11am. Lena and Andy are looking forward to chatting to you online and seeing how they can help support you and your business during these...lets be honest, blooming weird times.

Agency Squared, supported by FTSQ put on a Q&A webinar for agency owners during lockdown.

About this event

Let’s be honest, it’s damned unsettling being in lockdown. Its why Agency Squared, with the support of FTSQ, wanted to offer an hour of FREE practical advice to support the agency community, during one of its most challenging periods on record.

Topics the Q&A can cover:

  • New business (branding, marketing, communications, lead generation/sales/pitching)
  • Client services
  • HR/recruitment*
  • Finance*
  • Operations*
  • (*Offered as experienced business owners, not practitioners)

We won’t ask you to step outside, instead you’ll be able to relax with a cuppa (staple the kids to the sofa in front of the telly for an hour) while you join us for a Q&A webinar discussion. You can freely submit your questions on the day.

So why Agency Squared and FTSQ?

Combined Lena and Andy have 52 years business experience you’ll be able to draw on during the session. Both have worked client/agency-side, SME and corporate. Both have owned their own businesses. Here are they are in a nutshell:

Andy Bargery, Founder Agency Squared

  • 22 years in marketing, Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
  • Andy cut his marketing teeth client-side on two well-known brands Compaq and Walkers Crisps.
  • He then moved agency side around the time of the millennium (primarily in client service for clients in technology, property, energy, and travel sectors) for agencies large and small i.e. Omnicom (Pleon, Ketchum).
  • Founded his own consultancy Klaxon in 2011 with clients such as Google, Vodafone and Xerox.
  • But recently Andy wanted to go where his passion really lies, agencies and helping others, so he set up Agency Squared a community for marketing agency owners where he has also begun training marketers for Chartered Institute of Marketing qualifications.

Lena Robinson, Founder/Fixer FTSQ

  • 30 years in business in New Zealand, UK and globally.
  • Lena’s a straight talking Kiwi with a reputation as a savvy business woman.
  • She’s held senior business development roles within Ogilvy, Wunderman, Vizeum and Dentsu Aegis Network, as well as a number of smaller boutique agencies (and did pure lead gen. before that…the rest takes too long to write)
  • 2014 Lena set up Kiwi Girls, that later became Kiwi Gray, a strategic brand, marketing and new business agency for agencies and tech start-ups.
  • 2018 she sold up and started FTSQ a community that supports non-conformists and the business owners within that community. The aim being to support them, via her consultancy, in achieving everything they were told they couldn't by F***ing with The Status Quo.
