COVID Reset @ Noon: Fast Forward with Philippe Krakowsky
The post-COVID-19 world is markedly different from what we have all seen before. Marketers are challenged to think more creatively about messaging, execution, and distribution; and ROI has never been more important. As a result, a brand’s ecosystem of partners must shift their value propositions and provide value and offerings they may not have imagined previously. In this conversation, hear from IPG COO Phillippe Krakowsky on how the holding company and its agencies are reinventing their model for a future that’s come earlier than expected, all with a goal to help marketers navigate unprecedented challenges.
Agency Transformation: Building for the Future Together, Now
Recent disruption has amplified the demand from clients for diversified services, making this an opportune time for agencies to transform their business model.

In an extraordinary moment where the combination of healthcare, economic and societal crises challenged the marketing and communications industry the world over, the dynamic between consumers, advertisers and agencies was reset.
Businesses focused on cultivating resilience, seeking opportunity for innovation and digital transformation, will emerge stronger. And while the landscape will continue to change, an agency's first priority remains constant － deliver inspired work that resonates with consumers and drives results for clients.
