'All-in-90' TRAINING : On Insight - What’s The Problem, Really?

‘All-in-90’ TRAINING : On Insight – What’s The Problem, Really?

When you are trying to crack a client brief – this is one of the most important questions.

Get it wrong and you can waste a lot of time. Get it right and you can win pitches, develop creative work quickly and put in place the right measures of success.

We cover

  • Inspiring examples of how defining the problem clearly or differently led to effective and creative work
  • Key questions to ask when tackling a brief – including a checklist
  • Collaborative planning methods to include the whole team to get buy in
  • How to set objectives for successful evaluation

What you will learn in this session can be run on zoom or face to face.

It includes Zoom breakouts so you can familiarise yourself with methods.

All delegates receive a digital record

DELEGATE LEVEL: Account Directors, Senior Account Managers and Planners. If you are a key person on the pitch or the project.
