I’ve been rather quiet on the blog since I joined the British Red Cross back in April.

Since moving client side i’ve been observing and learning what it’s like to be a PM on the other side of the fence. It’s been a really interesting experience so far and I am loving working client side and immersing myself in the one brand.

Back in November I did a talk at the Norther Digital Project Managers (nDPM) meet-up.

I reflected on lessons learnt between the client and agency sides, and what PMs on both sides of the divide can learn about each others worlds.

The talk covers 5 core pillars for a successful agency / client relationship:

  • Capabilities
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Creativity
  • Commitment
  • Communication

Though helpfully I have recorded my talk which is around 30 minutes long.

Please see the video below and i’d welcome any comments / feedback.
