Article highlights and summary:

Disruption has been constant over the past few years. Therefore, staying updated on the conditions affecting the market is a top priority for smart business leaders in 2023, and agency leaders are no exception. To ensure agencies will be agile enough to pivot and evolve as needed, proactively identifying the trends that promise to have a major effect on the industry this year is key.

He states:

From a brand standpoint, we’re facing a rebalancing of focus. While organizations have relentlessly pursued consumer-oriented solutions in the creation of brands across industries, we anticipate a “correction” in focus, including a much more purposeful orientation toward employees—both current and prospective. This rebalancing will require broader insight and deeper HR and marketing collaboration.
