Strategic Marketing course

Professional Presenting A Strategic Marketing Plan

With technology-empowered customers, a proliferation of media, channel and customer contact points, and data overload, organisations need to rethink the role of marketing. No longer is marketing strategy strictly the responsibility of marketing managers. Marketing should be treated as a high-level managerial competence, with brand and customers at the heart.

A competitive marketing strategy based around customer insight is essential to business success.  Marketing executives need to develop strategy that is customer-centric, takes into account marketplace potential and risk, and incorporates contemporary best practice.

For marketing and non-marketing professionals, this course will enable you to understand and up-skill on the latest marketing tools, concepts and strategies. It will focus on marketing planning and give you fresh and innovative ways to develop, evaluate and implement successful marketing strategy into your organisation.

Drawing on cutting-edge knowledge, the course uses real world examples and case studies, and features industry guest speakers. Topics covered include branding, value co-creation, customer service, the customer experience, and mapping the customer journey.
