This Speech is Only Half Finished gives agencies, studios, even freelancers a proven process for helping get to the truth of who they are and who they best serve, so they can break through to the next level – and get more of whatever they value most from what they do, whether that’s money, prestige, freedom, creativity or something else.
When you read or hear about our industry’s celebrities – agency or individual – do you ever ask yourself, “What do they know that I don’t?”
I’d argue that, first and foremost, they know themselves.
I’m Eric Kiker, a 20-year advertising and marketing veteran who’s worked with great companies – Naked Juice, Atkins, Dr. Pepper, Pepsi, Janus, Hunter Douglas, Vail, Noodles & Company. I’ve won a few awards: New York and LA Art Directors, Print, Webby, Graphis, a Clios short list and inclusion in the Permanent Collection of the Library of Congress. Yet I, along with my colleagues and agencies, LeeReedy and Xylem Digital are virtually unknown in the ad/design/digital world, creating other nagging questions, which possibly, you ask too:
What do we REALLY stand for?
What makes us good that could make us great?
Could we break through to a whole new level?
“This Speech is Only Half Finished,” chronicles our agency’s struggle, not to reinvent, but to define itself. To find the truth of the possible greatness that lies hidden at the core of our company and to bring it out, where it can help answer all those questions. Mine – and yours.
