Account Handling Mentoring: Should I stay or should I go?

Why so many are considering a move right now.

With so much discussion around ‘the great resignation’, account handlers are not only reconsidering their own career choices, but also dealing with the challenges of working with tighter, smaller teams.

Many are considering a move right now - so if you fall into this category, you’re not alone.

Research shows huge amounts of people are considering a different role in advertising or leaving the industry altogether, but:

  • What is the right option for you?
  • Under what circumstances should you stay?
  • If you do move, what should you be looking for in your new role?

Join our team of experts who have been there, seen it, done it. Share with them some of your very real challenges - and find out what has worked for them over their careers - in this interactive session.

Mentors include:

  • Ed Palmer, MD, St Luke's

  • Amanda Farmer, Global Client Leader, The WBA Partnership, WPP
  • Louise Hayward, CEO, Now
