Strategy! The Workout

March 7th, 2018 - March 7th, 2018

How do you get good at strategy?

That’s the question this two-hour session seeks to answer. In a high energy, hands-on workout, attendees will run through survival techniques that help creative brains quickly get to good strategy while exploring ways to practice every day. They’ll leave supercharged but, most importantly, they’ll take with them clear definitions of words such as “problem”, “insight”, “idea”, and “strategy”, and a determination to do more strategic, more creative work back at their desks.




Who is it for?

This workshop is designed for new and mid-career marketers from all areas of the industry: client, agency, tech and media.


What you can expect to takeaway?

  • Lateral thinking
  • Problem identification
  • Cultivating insights (and writing them)
  • Defining a company’s advantage
  • Strategy statements/propositions
