On demand learning
Together with my partners at Impact Planning we have put together The Accidental Marketer Complete Strategy Course. A self-paced online program that will take you through twelve modules to give you everything you need to create a world class strategic marketing plan.
Contact me if you would like a free preview of the course or would like to know a little more.
In person classroom sessions (currently suspended due to ongoing pandemic)
This is (or was) the most popular offering. You assemble a group of typically 15-25 people from across your business unit and, over two to five days, they develop strategic marketing plans specific to your markets, products and customers.
This isn’t a generic marketing training class; this is a tailored program aimed at getting real work done. It is guiding people how to think, not telling them what to do. Finding the right questions before looking for simple answers.
Online virtual workshops and training sessions
This has become the most popular engagement. It was previously used as part of a pre or post-classroom event. Now it is a direct replacement. In fact, in many ways it is better.
- It can scale up or down to meet specific needs of your business
- It is more efficient and convenient with no travel or living costs
- It is more effective. Rather than cram everything into sixteen hours over two days, we conduct eight two-hour sessions spread over two weeks or longer.
- It allows more direct coaching and guidance of individuals and sub teams.
Coaching and advisory roles
Sometimes you just need help with a single project. A product launch say. or maybe an annual marketing plan. Sometimes you just need an outsiders perspective. These types of engagements can last a couple of months or be ongoing. They can involve multiple contacts over a short period or quarterly contacts over a year. In short, they can be adapted around your needs.
Ok, so that’s a quick overview of the types of engagements available. As I said at the beginning, If you want to improve your businesses’ strategic marketing capabilities, it’s best to simply talk. We will soon find out if there is a good fit between us.
