CIO/Innovation leaders – Could A Monthly Meeting Change yourAgency’s Ability to Innovate and use AI?

The CEO of OpenAI has projected that AI will soon manage 95% of the tasks currently handled by agencies, strategists, and creative professionals, virtually eliminating significant costs. Faced with this shift, we have three strategic choices: 1) play possum, 2) follow the lead of others and learn from their experiences, or 3) take the initiative to lead the industries we serve by evolving beyond mere agency production to become indispensable strategic resources. To ensure your agency evolves and thrives, it’s crucial to recognize that visionaries within organizations may feel like ‘lone wolves,’ highlighting the need for collaboration where like-minded peers can challenge, inspire, and exchange insights with each other.

What if you could spend 90 minutes each month with an “ad hoc” board of advisors -others who are walking the same path as you, facing the same challenges?
We’re inviting you to join AMI’s CTO/CIO Network – a monthly 90-meeting of the member agency leaders (10 agencies max) who talk openly and freely about how they’re leveraging technology, AI, and other tools to maximize the agency’s opportunities and come together collectively to assist each other to tackle new challenges.

It will become the best, most productive half-day of your month. We promise.

AMI’s Kathleen Perley facilitates these virtual video gatherings of agency tech/innovation people from across the world who not only learn from each other but also create a bond in a confidential environment that promotes resource sharing, problem-solving, and camaraderie.

You’re Among Peers Who All Want The Same Thing

Every month, our members will convene to stay informed about the latest trends and technological advancements in the agency realm. We’ll tackle critical topics ranging from data privacy protections and building first-party data strategies to applying AI in our operations. This group will also concentrate on turning innovative ideas into actionable outcomes. Moreover, we will hold each other accountable and share our results, using this collective insight to identify further optimization.

This Isn’t For Everyone

AMI’s Virtual CTO/CIO Network is for agencies that fit the profile of the other 250 small to mid-size agencies we work with each year … a mix of advertising agencies, PR firms, marketing shops, media buying, digital marketing, and design firms with the desire and drive to grow their business to the next level.
To be considered for membership; you must:

  • Be an agency’s technology or innovation leader (could be an owner or team lead)
  • Be ready to experiment and share your learnings
  • Be interested in peer group discussions and learning
  • Be willing to share your ideas, successes, and failures generously and openly

On top of that — you’ll be part of an active learning lab, creating new templates and prompts for everyone in the group to share.

Learn AMI’s Best Practices

In addition to learning from each other, we’ll share AMI’s best practices that help agency COOs come alongside their agency owners to operate profitable enterprises. We’ve learned these ourselves from a collective 50+ year experience of operating our own agencies.

Interact With Purpose From Your Desk

Like anything, what you contribute is proportional to what you receive. This confidential environment promotes a dialogue of trust and sharing. The key to making a peer network meaningful is members’ willingness to be open and honest – sharing successes as well as failures. The exponential power of people coming together with a common purpose and experiences can change your life.
