Training can be a hard sell at the best of times, particularly when your team is busy actually delivering projects, so when top London ad agency W+K wanted their employees to make the most from Google Workspace, Google Cloud Partner, Refractiv had to get creative.

Independent, creative advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy have offices across the globe and list Nike, Three, Honda, Sainsburys and TK Maxx amongst their UK clients.

Staff across different departments were working with a variety of hardware and productivity software and with varying use and competence, weren’t getting the most from their Google Workspace package.

Google Cloud Partner Refractiv stepped in to develop and deliver an engaging training package on Team Drives, Gmail and Hangouts to help agency wide collaboration and power sessions for Google Slides and Sheets aimed at the Account Handling teams.

Our business is very creative by nature and it’s pretty fast paced, so it’s often challenging to get people’s time and attention for something like training. Refractiv came up with some great sessions that were informal and interactive, which was perfect for our team and we’re definitely getting more from Google Workspace as a result
