Thursday 4th July East Bridgford, Nottinghamshire

In order to run a successful business you need to understand your market and its potential – there’s no point in coming up with an amazing innovative product or service if, in fact, no one wants to buy it.

Strategic Marketing is about establishing a basis for competing in your chosen marketplace. It is about how you differentiate yourself from the competition by understanding, developing and capitalising on your strengths.

By understanding your product’s place in the market you can then develop a vision, mission, and some core values, as well as beginning to articulate a strategic plan. No business will survive without this.

As Sun Tsu wrote, ‘Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.’

The cost to attend is £120 + VAT per person. A discount of 10% will be applied to all signed up members which is currently FREE.
