David delivered a strategic marketing workshop for Creative Georgia in April 2021.
With the title ‘Strategic Marketing for Business Success’, the marketing workshop for Creative Georgia covered the following key points:
– How to be strategic about marketing
– How to succeed in a competitive market
– How to focus on the best customers
In the interactive workshop, David explained the differences between strategic marketing and marketing communications (operational marketing).
This practical workshop provided action points about how to succeed in a competitive market using key strategic marketing principles.
Focusing on the right customers, in contrast to trying to sell to everyone, is one of the key aspects of a strategic approach to marketing.
David’s presentations included examples and stories from his own experience of marketing in the creative industries, plus case studies from the hundreds of creative enterprises he has worked with in more than 50 countries around the world.
This marketing workshop for Creative Georgia was organized by LEPL Creative Georgia in the frame of the British Council grant programme, “Creative Spark: Higher Education Enterprise Programme”.
