BIG IDEAS PRODUCING REAL RESULTS
For The Coca-Cola Company, we led the world’s first all-video RFP review. 100% video out and video in. It saved trees, but more importantly it gave the agencies a chance to wow the selection committee prior to their presentations.
We connected Zaxby’s with the right agency to elevate their TV advertising and social content to help take the brand into a position of national leadership, starting with a Super Bowl commercial.
In a 21-day process, we connected Johnny Rockets with the right agency in our first project-based review via remote briefings and creative presentations.
What our clients say about our work
“We would have fallen short of multiple aggressive brief deadlines, not to mention placed sub-par agency partners, if we worked with anyone else.”
Global Group Director Digital Communications & Social Media at The Coca-Cola Company
“In the course of 100 days, Michael helped us get to a “great, no debate” new agency partner that had the exact right credentials, capabilities and chemistry…and importantly, one that the entire organization embraced.”
Former CMO Heineken USA, Arby’s Restaurant Group, Church’s Chicken
“Michael understands the agency search process and serves as a resource offering advice and counsel throughout the process resulting in an expedited search and fast starts with our new agencies.”
Global Brand Director Stainmaster Brand
“He is as well-connected as anyone I’ve ever met in the agency business. He will find the best talent for you to work on your business. He understands personality fit. Do yourself a favor and call Mike Palma.”
CMO, Ovation Brands, LLC
“We conducted all prior searches internally with far less success and efficiency than Michael brought to the table. Not only do I believe that this last search will be the most successful, but also I know that it was the most organized, effective, and fun.”
COO, Youfit Health Clubs
“Mike knows how to interpret client needs to match agency strengths. In an expedited time frame he found the exact solution. I had the most impact and fun in many years during this process.”
SVP Marketing, Johnny Rockets
“His agency review process is not “best-in-class” — it’s in a class of its own. His intimate knowledge of different agency cultures and specialties sets him apart from other search consultants.”
