Marketing Strategy – Developing marketing strategies for growth and competitive position.

Often the strategy is shown as objectives or tactical execution. Adopting a clearly defined and integrated approach to marketing strategy development and understanding the building blocks and key components that underpin successful marketing strategy will be highlighted in this workshop.
