This stimulating two-part workshop guides you through each step of the process of developing your own strategic and tactical marketing plan, to increase your competitive advantage in the marketplace. You should attend both workshops.

A combination of tried and tested marketing tools and frameworks will be used, as well as newly developed ones, to reflect the ever-changing nature of marketing. A range of techniques are used to make the learning experience real and lasting, including group exercises and video clips. You’ll build up your own plan as the workshop proceeds, using building blocks that you can adapt and tailor to your own situation, and which you will take away with you at the end of the course.
