Welcome to Agile

We’re nearly 20 years old, so it’s really more of a welcome back!

Either way, welcome to a refreshed, rejuvenated Agile – we’ve launched an exciting new website, updated our brand identity, and added some clarity to our proposition as we continue to expand. Don’t worry, we’re still focused on managing prizes and running events, but we’ve also grown into something more…
 
The world is constantly changing, and with more uncertainty than ever, securing the financial future of an events programme has never been more important. Having begun life as a strategy consultant in the big bad city, before joining Agile for a career running literary prizes, I’m determined to use my unique dual experience to help our clients and partners thrive in a challenging marketplace.

What do we do?

In the two decades since our founder helped set up Channel 4’s Richard & Judy Book Club campaign in the UK, we have developed the expertise to run each and every element of a literary or wider arts-based prize campaign – whether securing sponsors, managing the submission & judging process, producing prime-time TV programmes, running retail, social & publicity campaigns, managing events or developing a brand identity – we like to think we’ve become experts in all departments! Have a look at our full list of services to find out more.

Whats our objective?

Here at Agile, we believe there are two key elements to running successful prize campaigns. Firstly, we pride ourselves on never losing sight of the stories themselves, with our primary goal being to shine a light on success, and the stories behind that success. Secondly, to ensure we can do the stories justice, we know the importance of a carefully considered award structure, and a well-thought out funding model.

How can we help?

With literally 1000’s of prizes now competing for both funding and attention, we can help put you centre stage, AND make sure you stay there for years to come:

      • Do you need support developing your sponsorship proposition or funding model? Perhaps you would benefit from expert advice around budget allocation or an informed view on the structure of your campaign?

      • Do you need support developing your brand identity, or curating a creative campaign? Are you happy with your brand, but need help creating your prize materials, and managing the production process?

      • Are you fed up of managing multiple third-party relationships? Maybe we could help refine the process, or run the prize administration, freeing you up to focus on the stuff that really matters?

      • Alternatively, is your lack of expertise in one specific area holding you back? Maybe you need short-term support when resources are strained?

One of our projects, An Post’s Irish Book Awards campaign, recently became the first ever Arts-based Sponsorship to win the Overall Sponsorship of the Year at the European Sponsorship Awards – for our insight on the winning campaign, click here.
 
For those new to Agile, we are an expanding independent agency, with a physical presence in London, Bath & Dublin. However, don’t be fooled, we also work on many international campaigns, with projects in the Middle-East & India, and further international expansion on the horizon…
 
It’s exciting times for us at Agile, and we want to bring as many of you along for the ride as possible, so please get in touch to find out more, or just to say hi!
