Creative Operations Los Angeles 2022

Making Creative Work Better


Wayne Barringer

Founder and CEO

WBC Advisors

Wayne formed WBC to help creative leaders improve their workplaces. Talent drain, operational chaos, and a sprint to digital has dramatically impacted in-house and independent agencies. WBC trains leaders by providing and guiding them with the cultural, communication and organizational tools to thrive better than ever. The result: greater retention, stronger operations and better reputation and team performance.

Before WBC, Wayne led one of the industry’s most challenging and most successful in-house creative turnarounds at Boeing Content Studio, where the team went from a lagging 55% employee engagement to an elated 85%, becoming one of the most efficient, high-performing, and award-winning creative teams in the world.

Wayne gives back by actively supporting organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Rescue: Freedom, Races Texas and more. He recreates by climbing mountains like Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro.

HS Creative Operations was a great chance to see people in person again, focus my attention on the presentations, and see how other agencies are tackling today's issues.

It was so easy to connect with the presenters - having some one-on-one time with them where I could ask specific questions was incredible!
