Account Management
Table | YCN Rivington Rooms — For our members

We'll gather a group of account directors and account managers from agencies in our network to join in a conversation about best practice.

Consistent and efficient account management is a true skill. 

Often the lynchpin of an organisation and the crucial link between the client and the creatives, the role is varied and spans a wide range of skills and responsibilities. Account management is often a balancing act of ensuring projects are delivered to the highest possible standards, whilst managing budgets, timelines and teams.

Each organisation has a slightly different definition of what makes a good account person and, since the boundaries vary from company to company, there’s so much we can learn from each other. 

On the evening of 8th May, we’re inviting account directors and account managers from agencies in our network to join and engage in a conversation around the skills needed to be successful in account management today, all over some drinks and a bite to eat at our Rivington Rooms space.  

We’ll be asking and sharing on how we can best balance the hard skills (project management, resourcing, budgeting) and soft skills (emotional intelligence, managing upwards, building relationships with clients) and we’ll exchange stories and suggestions to help you improve in your role. 

Join us for an evening of valuable conversation and fresh insights into a familiar topic.

Partner with us

Creatively-driven organisations partner with YCN to continually build capability throughout their teams.

Our open, year-round learning programme brings people from across these organisations together, enriching their mindsets and skillsets, and building their networks too. We take targetted, topic specific sessions into members’ teams at their places of work; and, when required, help our members to connect with the smartest thinking from across our network in relation to specific business challenges.
