The development of an appropriate marketing strategy and the creation of a robust planning process lie at the heart of a successful business.  Too often marketing is viewed as being the implementation of a range of tactical initiatives, but those companies that truly understand marketing and the concept of strategy and planning use them powerfully to drive their business growth.

The workshop will consist of a mixture of small group work, syndicate work and plenary sessions as well as presentations from the trainer.  The group work and syndicate sessions will ideally work from actual examples drawn from the training delegates’ experience and real working situations.  This will enable the delegates to use the workshop as an opportunity to begin to apply the training whilst participating in the workshop itself.
