Agency Coaching and Training Services

TRAINING AND COACHING FOR ADVERTISING AGENCY PROFESSIONALS

Finding time to train and develop your people can be tough. Between client needs, keeping up with the fast pace of the industry, staffing challenges and giving yourself actual time to work, training and development often slide to a lower priority on the list.

Agencies are built on client relationships and creativity. Your team members need to know how to ask the right questions, anticipate client needs, be a salesperson, serve as a client advocate and lead internal teams. While it's possible to outsource many other elements of an agency, you can't outsource the relationship.

CANOAN Strategy is a training and coaching company for advertising and marketing agencies. We provide done for you services to up-level your team so they can more effectively grow your current business and win new business.

ABOUT US

I founded CANOAN because I saw a gap in how agency leaders wanted to train and coach their teams and what was actually happening.

 

Employee turnover in the agency world averages 30% - only second to tourism (Forbes).

Why?

Billable work almost always takes priority. Non-billable training and coaching development seems to fall to the end of the list no matter how good our intentions are.

When your employees don't have access to coaching, training, professional development and career growth, they leave. And sometimes your clients aren't far behind.

CANOAN exists to make it easier for your team to get the training, coaching and personal development that you desire. By creating the content and framework for you, it eliminates the massive task of building a training and coaching program from the ground up.

Developing your team leads to stronger client relationships, account growth, new business opportunities and lower turnover. Building a consistent training and coaching program for your people has probably been on your to do list for a long time. Let's work together to get it done.
