MarComm Supply Chain Management

Members: $295

Non-Members: $395

  • What projects/functions you should be doing yourself vs. outsourcing and how to outsource them
  • How to initiate projects so that everyone understands the value the project is delivering 
  • Current trends in the marcom value chain
  • How to purchase knowledge products and services so there’s no buyer/seller remorse
  • Why this is so darn hard sometimes!

  • Smarter buying of MarComm services
  • Structuring your department for profit
  • Greater clarity of the value the marcom team/function delivers in the organization

This seminar is for emergent MarComm leaders – people who are moving in their career trajectory from implementing tasks themselves to supervising internal and external resources to produce work and execute campaigns on behalf of internal or external clients–and anyone in marketing who is procuring services to develop marcom assets. Likely you are mid-senior level management, in any size organization, where you have responsibility to a marcom budget line. But you may be junior-mid level, or in marketing department of one.
