Getting Buy-In On Your Big Ideas

Secrets Of A Creative Director

Join Brian Krenzer at Creative Pulse on Thursday, June 27th

Have you ever had a brilliant idea rejected because the client didn’t understand it?

You know you nailed it—but you walk away frustrated and misunderstood…and your client does too.

And as you reel from the rejection, you think…is there a better way to get buy-in on your big ideas?

After twenty years in advertising and design, Brian Krenzer has had many big wins with brands like Playstation, Nutella, and Kinder Surprise.

…but he’s also had more ideas rejected than he can count.

He knows that gut-wrenching feeling you get watching one of your precious ideas die before it’s time.

It wasn’t until Brian started viewing his clients as partners in his ideas that something unexpected happened.

His clients began to believe in—and approve—his boldest ideas.

Wild ideas came to life, like cutting the head off Sugar Bear, the Nutella Spife, and a cheese-destroying rocket-powered hammer.

On June 27th, Brian will share his methods for encouraging clients to put faith in your most audacious ideas.

Freelancers, agency teams, and in-house creatives can attend this Talk + Social to discover:

  • A framework for evaluating that you’re bringing the right ideas to your client.
  • A checklist for how to set yourself up for success before you present your big idea.
  • Recommendations for how to win the room when presenting your big idea.

Join us at Elevator Strategy for tasty beverages and pizza — and discover a better way to get buy-in for your big ideas.
