How to train your client
(Matt Riopelle, Digital Project Designer, @mattriopelle)
We all know well that there's no such thing as a perfect project or a perfect client. But if you find yours more frustrating than fun, more pain than profit, then it might be time for some client training. In this session, learn to teach your clients how to work with you and gain control over your projects. Matt will cover the hidden deals you make that cost you time and money, the behaviors that undermine your credibility and process, and what every client really wants out of the project.

Agile for agencies
(William Yarbrough, Rob Jones, Janis Gonser, Todd Nienkerk)
"Yes, but can you do agile?" is phrase often asked of agencies or shops -- but can you truly use agile project management methodologies in an agency environment? Our panel of experts will discuss the pros and cons of incorporating an agile project management methodology at the vendor level.
