    Why your ideas might be falling flat

    Picture this: Client asks you for a website refresh to and you pitch them a feature-length film. Wonder why your ideas are falling flat? Maybe you’re not listening to what your clients need. And let’s face it, if you don’t generate results, your clients won’t stick around to see the sequel.

    If this has happened to you (and we’ve all be there, right?), then join us for the next Food For Thought.

    Our panel of industry experts will cover things like: 

    • leveraging great client relationships and keeping communication lines open  
    • writing the perfect brief that leads to spot-on strategy and impactful creative
    • putting aside personal bias to meet your client’s needs
    • setting, and meeting, expectations (on both sides!)
    • asking the right questions to identify the business problem (because at the end of the day, that’s really what we’re solving)

    Bring your burning questions, too. Put our panel of experts to the test.

    Panel includes:

    Andy Nathan, Founder/CEO, Fortnight Collective

    Christie Tucay, Director of Client Services, TDA

    Kate Julian, Director of Client Services, SE2

    Eric Forsyth, Account Lead, Grenadier

    Sarah Eder, Principle and Founder, Primavera Group

    Denverites! Boulderites! Gunabarrelites! Springs’ers! Coloradans!

    Set aside your differences and unite in the pursuit of great ideas.

    From Super Bowl to social. From design to digital.

    All of the best ideas from the best state in the world get into the 50.

    Also, there’s a fancy party where we can rekindle our rivalries and have a big food fight if we want.

    Enter the 50 today.


    The Fifty does what every advertising show on Earth tries to do. Celebrate the good idea. Big. Small. Integrated. Traditional. Advertising. PR. Self-promotion. There are no categories here. It is media-neutral. And partial to smart thinking.

    The Fifty is not a trophy.
    That’s what makes it awesome. Because a trophy is meaningless. The Fifty is pure. Just the best ideas, judged by some of the best minds in advertising.

    Our judges will be names you’ve heard of. Architects of campaigns you know. And for once, they’ll be fawning all over your ideas, instead of vice versa.

    The Fifty is not small.
    And since we’re only picking fifty pure ideas, you can be sure they are elite. Anyone can display a trophy. But who can say they’ve had one of the fifty best ideas of 2015?
