Ellie Hale

Managing Director

Hiya, I’m Ellie, Managing Director of The Agency Collective. I am incredibly proud of the team behind The AC and the way we are striving always to make our community a more inclusive and supportive place.

I have seen The Agency Collective change agency owners’ lives – from the boundless support we gave our members to get through the Pandemic, to guiding them to find satisfying niches. Agency founders come to us at all stages of their agency journey because they want a real community they can belong to.

Rob Key

Chief of Community

Hey I’m Rob, a former agency owner, designer and currently harnessing my superpowers of ADD and Dyslexia to help people improve their mental health, community and the world around them!

My role at the AC is to look after and nurture the awesome community, run our events and as well as talk about all things agency world, more importantly, taking care of the humans behind them.

The AC is a unique and special place to work, our members share their ‘whole’ selves, open up, talk about the highs and lows. There’s no competition, just a willingness to help each other succeed.

Hey, I’m Jeni. I’m a passionate new business person, maker of lists and feeder of birds. I have a strong background in sales and being the first point of contact in businesses, spanning across many fields.

The Agency Collective is a seriously special place. I adore watching the process of new members joining us and realising that the community is such a valuable space to be in. I believe in the power of community, because I see the effects of it daily within ours.

The AC has the ability to provide support under every circumstance imaginable when it comes to running an agency. Our members are candid, brutally honest about their struggles, and you very quickly realise you are not alone in your challenges.
