James Collis is the founder and managing director of Revere agency.

A phenomenally successful insight-driven B2B marketing agency with clients like Avanade, VMware, Worldpay and Sitecore.

We discuss, what it takes to build a world-beating technology agency and what mistakes to avoid along the way.

He founded his first agency, Second2 in 2001 and built it to be one of the most successful B2B Marketing agencies in 2011 and later sold the business to an AIM-listed group. But realised they short-changed themselves and in his words, he‘learned how not to sell a business’.

If you are interested in:

  1. How they built Revere in just 6 years
  2. B2B technology trends
  3. How they attract top talent to work at the agency

We also talk about what’s important now to attract an increasingly purpose-driven, socially motivated millennial workforce who are less interested in financial incentives and are increasingly concerned with social issues of race and inequality.

If you are interested in any of that then you will find this conversation to be absolutely fascinating.

Enjoy the chat.
