Office HoursFree advice weekly from agency expert Karl Sakas
Got a quick question about running your marketing agency, looking for career advice, interested in volunteering with AMA Triangle, or just want to say hello? Inspired by Beck Tench‘s office hours, I hold weekly Office Hours [nearly] every Tuesday in Raleigh (and other times in other cities).
I’m available 11:30am-12:30pm on Tuesdays at Videri Chocolate Factory (327 W. Davie St., Raleigh, NC 27601), apart from a few “blackout dates.” Anything we discuss is confidential—apart from our being in a public space, of course.
Why I Share Free Advice at Office Hours
Why do I do Office Hours? Having a standing one-hour block each week helps me fit more face-to-face meetings into my schedule. I’d love to meet you!
There’s no charge—my Office Hours are free for you. Office Hours aren’t a substitute for an in-depth Sakas & Company consulting project or coaching session, of course—but buy a cup of Stumptown coffee, hot or iced chocolate, or cocoa-nib tea from Videri’s coffee counter and let’s chat!
How to Sign Up (or Show Up)
Otherwise, Office Hours are first-come, first-served.
If you’re visiting from out of town, tweet me at @KarlSakas or call/text me at 919-410-6224 to double-check ahead of time, just in case (I may have an occasional unexpected conflict beyond what’s listed above, or a client call may have run long)
Parking & Directions in Raleigh
Set your GPS for 327 W. Davie St., Raleigh, NC 27601. There’s free validated parking in the adjacent lot—no need to pay for on-street parking.
Drive under the metal crane at the entrance and let the parking attendant know you’re going to Videri. You’ll get a ticket; get that validated inside Videri to ensure you don’t get charged on exit.
