Marketing Essentials - three days

A series of three consecutive monthly marketing workshops designed to help junior marketers learn practical marketing skills that they immediately apply to real-life business challenges.

The course content takes an adaptive approach. Any individual needs observed during each workshop then feeds directly in to the content and teaching level set for the next workshop. We ask delegates to work on existing or upcoming marketing projects that are relevant to their department or career progression. We therefore need input from marketing leaders on the best projects their teams could work on and an agreement to provide feedback on those projects across the three months.
