Episode 23: Agencies Need to Understand Their Clients’ Businesses, with Jason Swenk

Jason Swenk is a sought-after advisor who guides marketing agencies through a proven framework for increasing their business.

Fresh out of college Jason was off to work for Arthur Anderson. He quickly realized that it was not a good fit. Although it was not part of the plan, he decided to change direction, quit his day job and launch a digital agency that quickly grew to a multi-million dollar operation working with brands such as AT&T, Hitachi and Lotus Cars. After 12 years of steady growth, they caught the attention of bigger agencies and sold the agency in 2012.

Now, Jason leads JasonSwenk.com, a unique consultancy helping marketing agencies start, scale, enjoy, and sell their digital agencies by applying the exact proven formula he used.

Jason generously shares it all as a frequent guest on popular radio and podcast shows. He has been featured as an expert in top media publications such as Entrepreneur and Inc. Magazine. Plus, he currently hosts two podcasts that are available for download and subscription on iTunes:

  • The Smart Agency Master Class Podcast, dedicated to providing tactics and strategies to agency owners and decision makers that cut through the BS, focus on exactly what works and what doesn’t.

Episode 15: Get to the Point - Best Presentation Tips, with Dave Yewman

In the past 10+ years Dave’s coached CEOs, professional athletes, tech startup founders, engineers, creative designers and pretty much everyone in between.

Dave Yewman is a strategic communications expert with more than 15 years of experience. A former newspaper reporter and columnist, he speaks regularly to groups about how to use clear, concise, compelling language as a strategic weapon when dealing with reporters, employees, sales prospects, shareholders, and consumers.
