Thanks for registering for the Tech Trends & Tools Every Agency Needs to Know and Harness Workshop!

We’re looking forward to spending a couple days with you, talking about ways agency owners and digital directors can transform their digital offering from being price-sensitive and commoditized into a distinctive service that delivers predictable ROI outcomes to clients and accelerates agency AGI .

We will definitely be adopting the AMI philosophy of — you will gain in proportion to what you share so I’m hoping that everyone will come to the workshop ready to learn from each other and hopefully from me as well. We will also be honoring the AMI commitment to confidentiality so please come ready to get to know each other’s agencies — warts and all.

Here’s some general information for the workshop. The workshop is January 27 and 28th.


Meeting will be held at:
Disney’s Grand Floridian
4401 Floridian Way
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

Call 407-939-4686 and use event code GO685274 for discounted price of $229/night.
You can also reference the meeting as Agency Management Institute January 2016 B.

The hotel will honor this amazing rate (normally it’s $600-700/night) for 3 days before and 3 days after the event.  If you can bring down your family or friends — it will be well worth it.  The Grand Floridian is on the monorail and the next stop is the Magic Kingdom!


We’ll start both mornings at 8:30 am with breakfast in the meeting room. We will start the actual workshop at 9 am both mornings. We’ll shut down on Wednesday at 5 pm and Thursday at 3 pm.  Many of you will be able to fly back home Thursday night, if you choose to.  Please do not schedule your flight so early that you have to leave early.

I’m hoping that Wednesday night you will be our guest for dinner. We’ll meet in the lobby at 6 pm.


Please come to both day’s meetings in casual clothes. Shorts, polos, jeans — whatever makes you comfortable. However — meeting rooms tend to be chilly and I tend to set them to chilly so you might want to bring a sweater, sweatshirt etc.


We’ll have breakfast in the room both mornings, lunch both days and dinner on Wednesday.


I know you’ll need to check in with the office and voicemail, email etc. I’ve built a 30 minute break into both morning sessions and a 30 minute break in Tuesday’s afternoon session so you’ll never be disconnected for more than a couple hours.


I’m okay with you bringing a laptop or iPad, etc., into the meetings but please know there will not be any internet access. I would ask that you use your technology to take notes — but not to allow yourself to be distracted with email, etc. We’re counting on your active participation.


If so — give me a shout at 774-724-3629 or shoot me an email.

Now, I’d appreciate it if you’d answer a few questions for me.
