How Hungry Are You?, AM-Insider article by Sarah Ritchie

We tend to hear this glibly-spoken phrase a LOT, and largely during the international rugby season. The winning team (usually the All Blacks, but I’m not biased) will be the one with the most ‘hunger’, the most determination, motivation and desire.

Some people are quite happy to simply "do their job" and go home, therefore how much do you REALLY want to succeed as an Account Manager? How much do you want to go over-and-above to create an exceptional client experience? How dedicated are you to being the best Account Manager you can possibly be?

But what happens when you work with a client that is based offshore and has already developed the creative and expects you to simply ‘localise’ that concept and collateral for your own market? How do you go about ensuring the localised material is going to be a success?
