One-minute videos of Synergist's MD/founder Keith White on agency growth, creativity, profitability and agency management

Read the video transcript

In the UK, there's a huge amount of great creative talent across the board, and we've got great assets in the digital world, traditional advertising and design; some fantastic work being produced.

It's really sad to see that some people who are producing really great work aren't getting the rewards for some of the things they do. It's about producing great work, and it's also, when you're running a business, it's important to make money.

So you have to balance those two things. Having a system helps you identify that you are or you're not, and where you are making money.

If there's an industry that is a classic case of wanting to do great things for the client and great work, but at the expense of their own profitability, then the creative industry is very good at doing that.
