Marketing is critical to any organisation and it’s important that all aspiring leaders should have a good understanding of how marketing strategy is developed and operationalised.
Marketing is not just advertising; it’s a sophisticated discipline that in many ways drives organisational philosophy. Marketing strategy places the customer at the centre of an organisation’s strategy and drives its decision and processes.
- Mastering Marketing Strategy starts with the analysis of the market, including customers, competitors and the ecosystem.

- Finally, we look at developing customer journeys, digital marketing frameworks, search engine optimisation, search engine marketing and the different types of social and search content that can be used to drive audience, customer and profitable growth.

This 3-day programme covers the key topics such as strategic planning, segmentation, targeting, and positioning.
Looking forward to seeing you soon in Cambridge.
This 3-day marketing open programme covers the key topics in marketing, such as marketing strategic planning, segmentation, targeting and positioning, product strategies, pricing strategies, branding strategies, customer journey and digital marketing. it is aimed at business executives who are non-marketers but acutely aware of the importance of marketing in driving sustainable growth and profitability for organisations. In the digital era, marketing is no longer just about communication and promotion, but an ongoing organisational process that ensures the value created by various departments collectively within an organisation precisely addresses the right problem faced by the target customers. Aspiring business leaders need to deeply understand the new roles and functions played by marketing in this new era in order to truly win customers’ hearts and minds, and therefore lay the foundation for their organisations’ long-term success.
