How many great ideas never get implemented at your company because the approval process is more complicated than putting a man on the moon? My guess is more often than you would like to admit. Too often I hear feedback from clients that they love an idea but cannot move forward because it “will never get approved by legal.”
Well no more. Creativity is what intrigues buyers, develops brand awareness and makes sales. It is needed, and we cannot sacrifice it in order to get approval.

Meet with your team on a regular basis to review progress and share success stories.
