Linkedin Training Course
May 2 2019, Sydney
There’s now 6 million Australians on Linkedin. Few are using it to its full potential. Very few have figured out how this platform can be used effectively for marketing (to find new business) or for their careers (to boost their online reputation.) In this one day Linkedin training course we’ll teach you how. This is a live, in-person class with small numbers where we step you through using Linkedin. It’s practical and hands-on.

B2B Demand Generation & ABM Workshop
May 21 2019, Sydney
A majority of B2B organisations struggle to get results from their demand generation investments. One of the biggest reasons for this is a lack of buyer-centric campaigns. Today’s B2B buyer is more sophisticated and more complex that ever, requiring B2B brands to develop programs that connect with the buyer based on their purchase journey . . . it is no small task. This is why we have developed the Buyer-Centric Demand Generation and Account Based Marketing (ABM) Workshop.
