Marketing in Turbulent Times
How to Maintain Resilience and Relevance in a Changing and Unstable World
(Half Day Workshop)

Workshop Description
Now more than ever, marketers need to be equipped to act nimbly in the face of uncertainty. Be it a global recession, inflation, a pandemic, social and political unrest, a terror incident, extreme weather events, the world is a turbulent place that demands preparedness and flexibility in order to rise above challenges and convert chaos into opportunity.

In this half day virtual workshop, participants will work through a 6-step framework for marketing effectively through turbulent times.

Participants will learn what makes a brand resilient through turbulence and change. We will look at how to put effective listening tools in place and gather feedback from touchpoints in order to maintain empathy and authenticity in branded communications.
