In a bid to take stock of business operations with a view to reviewing performances till date, make adjustments where required and forge ahead into the busiest part of the year full of energy and with the right spirit and attitude, Agile Communications LTD. recently held a strategy session cum retreat as its contribution to development of the marketing communications industry.
During the event, staff of the organisation were treated to lectures and motivational talks by external facilitators and advertising industry leaders on leadership, team building and insight to the industry realities of the present age.
Heads of departments including Lynda Aguocha ( Head of Business), Tolulope Owojaye (Experiential), Emmanuel Oparah (Creative) and Doyin Olayinka (HR) amongst others, also gave accounts of the organisation’s hits and misses and shared detailed plans on way forward on how to differentiate and position the agency as a leader in the digital age.
Every staff member of Agile was present at the retreat including the MD/C.E.O, Mr. Rufai Ladipo and other notable industry experts such as Mr. Yomi Badejo-Okusanya, C.E.O, CMC-Connect, Mr. Olusope Kayode, Mr. Idowu Thompson of Rock Thompson Activation agency and Mr. Steve Babaeko of Extr3m Ideas, who all shared experiences and spoke extensively on industry practices and how to stay ahead of the times.
“As you may be aware, our line of business only celebrates collective effort as against individual posturing and self-aggrandizement.
According to a statement signed by Ladipo, the retreat is an opportunity to celebrate staff members for their efforts, resilience and for fostering the spirit of teamwork that has made the company a whole and not a splintered group.
“It is also an avenue to retrace our steps, refuel and reenergize ourselves for the big tasks ahead of us” Ladipo said.
