David Gilroy is owner/founder of Digital Agency Conscious Solutions.
In his slot at GYDA Summit David will share his story of scaling-up and buying out his friend and business partner in their agency Conscious Solutions. When the realisation hit that after 27 years as friends they no longer shared a vision for the future of the agency, they decided to part company. Hear about how they went about arranging the buy-out, whilst maintaining their friendship.
Diversify your revenues. If Conscious was to lose its biggest client, it would only result in a loss of about 3% of their revenue. If you have a large client base rather than one or two major clients, you don’t have to worry about where revenue, including both profits and employee salaries, will come from, so you can enjoy more success and be a more responsible employer.
David Gilroy is Director of Stuff and Things (aka Sales and Marketing Director) at Conscious Solutions. He is one of the company’s founders and has personally worked with over 300 law firms on their digital marketing strategies.
