Transform your Team into Marketing Heroes

Why do exceptional account people seem to be surrounded by superstars? Because they make everyone around them look good.

There’s a whole crop of marketing people who operate with only part of the picture. They didn’t get the foundational training to be strategic, to guide product marketing and clients to consensus, or to understand the power of a solid creative brief.

The work often reflects the gap. And the process of creating the work gets bogged down, sidetracked and exponentially expensive.

It's time to build up your team

What is it?

The Marketing Heroes™ program creates the next generation of amazing account people. It fills the gaps in your staff’s strategic foundation with hands-on training, interactive workshops, and individualized feedback. They become more valuable and effective for your organization.

By focusing on the strategic building blocks of account management, participants learn essential skills that allow them to create better work, faster and in less time.

Workshops are taught on-line for individuals or as customized workshops for dedicated teams. On-line class size is limited for maximum feedback and interaction.

1. Communicating for Clarity and Action

You want your audience to take action whether the form is email, phone, or in person.  Learn to craft your communication for action including the 5 W’s of communication, curating content and the power of consistency. This class teaches the thinking behind effective communication.

2. Getting to Yes, Presentations that compel

Convincing someone to do something they don’t know they want to do takes finesse and strategy. Learn preparation, building an argument, how to make it easy to say yes and maximizing your format for the life of the presentation.

3. Turning Creative Briefs Into Roadmaps

The creative brief is the backbone of every successful campaign. Still, many teams skip this step because it’s more fun to jump to tactics. But could you imagine building a house without an architectural plan? Getting a creative brief together is not as difficult as many people believe. There are methods, and they can be mastered.

4. Creative-Speak as a second language: Vendor & Partner Relations

Creatives, product marketing and marcom speak different languages. Without an interpreter, instructions are mis-heard, strategies are skipped and work gets delayed in an endless loop.  Learn to meet the needs of all stakeholders by giving and extracting the information each group needs to do their best work. Your campaigns will thank you for it.
