The course is aimed at those entering the marketing profession or who are new to marketing as well as those currently working in other areas of the business who need to know more about marketing.

The course will allow delegates to appreciate the fundamental role of marketing in meeting business goals through the creation of profitable relationships

One of the biggest reasons for business failure is an organisation's inability to market itself properly. Get it right and business benefits will ensue. Get it wrong and precious time, effort and resources will be shamefully wasted.

The purpose of the course is to provide people new to marketing or non-marketers with an understanding of marketing principles and how they can be applied to any business. 

This intensive and highly interactive one-day course will help you understand how marketing works to improve business performance by creating satisfied customers who return time after time.
