  • Interesting presentation... but I feel it skips a key element! Where are the clients in all this? They too need to change. And frankly, until more clients transform their business and address social media traditional marketing firms will continue to be effective.

    I do agree that change is sweeping through our industry, but the final shape of the future agency has yet to be identified.
