Six Modules 

to make the transition

Module One:
The Big Overview

In the beginning we will explore what successful marketers really look like. Yes you need to be good at your job - at marketing. But it goes beyond that. Way beyond. It's all about how you do it, not what you do.

You will get an insight and an overview to the subsequent workshops - to get you into the right mindset for success. 

You will quickly find some solutions to your challenges.

Module Two: Emotional Intelligence

An overused term in the workplace. But what does it really mean for you. 

I will show you the key formula for gaining strength in your EQ. After all, successful marketers are strong in EQ. This workshop will get the ball rolling as you get to understand yourself and others in a different way. 

Module Three;
Leadership Skills

Okay, one workshop won't be enough to transform you into the world's greatest leader. But it will put you on the path. 

Because we all lead. Some of you will have teams to manage. You will need to lead agencies. And you will need to lead other functions to buy into your ideas. 

This workshop will give you the insight into becoming the leader that fits your personality. 


Module Four:
Creative Thinking

This workshop is all about creative thinking. Using creativity to generate ideas and solutions.

Because creativity is the engine room of marketing. 

If you think you are not creative, you are wrong. We all have creative talents locked away. This workshop will explain what stops creative thinking. It will teach you to trust your instincts. How to generate ideas and turn ideas into actions. 


Module Five;
Voice of the Customer

In the modern world of marketing, it is important that Marketing Managers become their customer's voice. Seek first to understand, then be understood. 

Learn how to listen to customers.


Discover how to share this. And how to measure key customer metrics.


And most importantly of all, why this is so important to you now.

Module Six:
Commercial Acumen

If you are fed up with being seen as the colouring in department, then you need to speak in the right language. You need to build credibility. relationships. And be reliable. You need to demonstrate hard facts, use metrics and simply be aligned to the business. 

Yes, marketing managers need commercial acumen and understand the business more. This workshop will point you in the right direction.
