The IAB is running a commercial acumen workshop for sales people within publisher and ad tech organisations. The basics of business seem simple: sales minus costs equals profit. However, in the 21st Century businesses are constantly creating innovative, fascinating ways of making money.

Understanding these traditional and disruptive business models is a crucial skill for anyone who wants to be successful in the advertising industry.

You’ll learn the 3 building blocks that make up any business model and how to quickly chunk down and analyze a client’s business model. Plus, you’ll be able to show how what you do affects your company’s bottom line.

  • Learn a framework to quickly analyze businesses and their business models
  • Learn the key terms, metrics and commercial language in advertising companies
  • Identify ways in which your role can affect an organization’s commercial success

The workshop will be run by industry veteran Rob Pyne who runs Realizer, a training & facilitation company specializing in decision-making, management and productivity and it suitable for people with approximately 2-5 years sales experience.
