Course Description

Whatever your organisation does, it is likely to need a marketing strategy to help ensure the right people know about your services. A marketing strategy should come from the heart of your organisation – reflecting its values. It also has to be practical and usable by different people – you, colleagues, volunteers with different skills and experience.

 This session will take you systematically through the process of developing an effective marketing strategy so that you can produce your own and keep it up to date in the coming months and years.


Participants at this workshop will go away with:

  • An understanding of what a marketing strategy does
  • Clarity around the potential for marketing within their own organisation
  • An outline marketing strategy for their own event, programme, project
  • Practical ways to independently develop and update the marketing strategy
