Cella’s Creative Manager Boot Camp

Two days. One extraordinary training opportunity.

We are so excited to announce our 2023 Cella’s Creative Manager Boot Camp, a two-part virtual training led by top industry experts Andy Epstein and Carey Cockrum, featuring a mix of classroom-led sessions and roundtable discussions. 

Dates: May 24 & June 1 | Time: 12-3 pm EDT | Location: Virtual

This complete training consists of two sessions, and both days of training feature a mix of classroom-led sessions and roundtable discussions covering topics including:

  • Leading People: Promoting Engagement, Morale, Culture and Team Building

  • CreativeOps Fundamentals: Time Capture and Data Analysis

  • Providing Feedback and Coaching

  • CreativeOps Fundamentals: SOPs and Workflows

  • Client Management/Managing Remote Teams

Who should attend?

Creative managers and team leads with fewer than five years of experience, more tenured managers who want to take advantage of a formal management training opportunity or whose businesses are growing, along with select junior team members who are transitioning into a management position in the future. You can come away from this training with strategies and best practices that can be immediately implemented with your team.

By leveraging both creative and operational expertise, teams under Andy’s leadership have consistently exceeded established KPIs and outperformed peer groups in the industry. He even cofounded InSource, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting in-house creative teams.

Also a daring foodie, he loves to try out dishes from different countries and cultures.
