Structure and Functions of an Ad Agency and its link with the Client

Dr. Aamir Khan

Mr. Asad Rizvi, Executive Director, Orient Communications (Pvt) Let (ORIENTmMcCANN) delivered a lecture on “Structure and Functions of an Ad Agency and its link with the Client” to an MBA class of Brand and Advertising Management on June 6, 2014 at the Lahore School of Economics.

Asad in his very well-received presentation started off with a video and discussion of Integrated Advertising and linked it with the role of an Ad Agency. His most important point was that the ad making process was not “magic” but was based on the scientific method. The whole idea of making and running an ad was to “persuade” people to buy specific products and services. Ads led to the development of Brands, and a brand was more than a promise, and nothing less than commitment to customers that they would have a unique experience.

Brands and Myths

Dr Aamir Khan

Mr. Arif Ijaz, one of the most senior speakers on the circuit of business management programs, and a regular visitor at the Lahore School, delivered a trade-mark provocative and value-adding lecture on “Brands and Myths” at the Lahore School on 17th of June 2014.

Mr. Arif spoke for over an hour on various “myths”, some true others not, associated with brands and at every step of the lecture challenged MBA participants to revise their received wisdom and textbook based knowledge. For example, he argued that there was a myth that a brand is developed by putting money into advertising. Not true, as there was much more than that, he asserted, including good governance inside the company. He also underlined that both B2B and B2C contexts had more in common in terms of branding – the Human to Human (H2H) element. In fact it was time for companies to think out of the box and use CSR as a tool for real and sustainable branding.
