How "hungry" are you?

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? What will it take for you to go that extra step?

This is not the hunger of a starving man, but rather the hunger of a man whose appetite is not satisfied with a ‘normal’ portion. It is the state of a man who wants more, and – therefore – seeks to go beyond mediocre, and “doing just enough”, to realise his goal.

So, I ask…how hungry are you?

Proof-reading and signing off work - who is responsible? 

April 15, 2018

In the ‘old days’ when proofing was done via hardcopy, clients would often sign on the hard copy to show that they had checked the work and approved for it to go to print (or another promotion channel). There was a clear understanding that they were taking full responsibility for the approval to proceed (because the sign-off form said as much). These days the line of responsibility is not so clear.
