What is IHALC?

The In-House Agency Leaders Club brings the In-House Agency community together to learn from, support and inspire each other, share best practice and problems, ask and answer questions. Think of it as a mutual self-help group for In-House Agency Leaders.

Through events, articles, research and training, IHALC helps In-House Agencies to work better and do better work. It was created in 2020 by ex-Creative Review Editor and D&AD Trustee and CEO, Patrick Burgoyne and founding partner, WDC.

Is it only for In-House Agencies?

IHALC membership is limited to In-House Agencies only. When you come to one of our events, you will be meeting your peers, whose challenges and ambitions mirror your own. Typically, our members are Agency Leads, Creative Directors, Directors of Operations, Heads of Production, Strategy Directors, Brand Leads and Directors of Content. Please do not apply if you do not work for, or manage, an IHA. Our Membership Terms and Conditions can be found here.

Is it only for In-House Agencies in the UK?

The core of IHALC’s membership offering is our in-person events and dinners, held in London. In order to get full value from your membership, you should have access to those. We host many online sessions during the year which are open to all, as well as helpful content for In-House Agency Leaders on our website and at our content hub on Creative Review, The In-House Life.

How does Team Membership work?

Team Membership is the best value IHALC Membership option. We want to give Members maximum flexibility to be able to get the most out of the core of Membership – our in-person events.

With Team Membership, you can choose who to send to any of our events. Every year, we will run a minimum of two One-Day Summits, five Breakfast Briefings and two Leaders Dinners. You have three places at each one – who you send is up to you, though we would encourage you to send senior leaders as they will derive the most benefit from the discussions that are central to all our events.

Before each event, we will contact the person who administers your Team Membership (ie the person who set up the account) with details of the event, a link to the event page and a Members’ Promo Code. Register attendees using the Promo Code in order to secure places for free. You will be able to purchase additional places at a discount. All specified in-person events are in London.

Team Membership also gives you access to The Sessions, our exclusive resource of interviews, insights and advice from In-House Agency Leaders. When you take out Team Membership, you can give access to all team members simply by adding them to your account. You can add or remove members at any time: members can be added by the administrator of the account by sending a unique link to colleagues. To do this, go to the Subscriptions area of your account, then click ‘Manage members’. You will have received an email via Memberful with a link to log-in to manage your account.
