The Levitt Group five great minds events bring together leading executives, academics and authors to share their knowledge with the CIM’s most experienced and senior members. It is an opportunity to listen to and question experts at the forefront of their field, a value for time way to maintain your professional knowledge and Chartered Marketer status. At this event, we will hear about:

Marketing in the Boardroom - Ruth Saunders, Galleon Blue
Marketers often fail to punch their weight in the boardroom, meaning they don’t get the resources they need. Ruth Saunders will explain why marketers often struggle to engage the Board and then, with a mix of practical solutions and case studies, describe how Marketers can understand Board mindset and language to win their hearts, minds and confidence.

Patterns of Strategy - Lucy Loh and Patrick Hoverstadt, Fractal Consulting
Traditional strategy processes often neglect the changing relationship between the firm and its market. In this presentation, Lucy and Patrick will describe a toolkit for understanding and using 80 patterns of strategy, a toolkit that allows firms to understand that dynamic relationship and so identify new approaches to competition and collaboration.

Gender, Design and Marketing - Professor Gloria Moss, Buckingham University
In this presentation, Professor Moss will describe how gender drives our perception of design and marketing. She will argue that marketers may pay attention to design but not pay enough attention to gender. What she has to say will challenge your perceptions and make you think differently about design and marketing.

Mapping Motivation- James Sales, Motivational Maps
In his presentation, James will give you new ways to think about what motivation is, why it is so problematic and how you can increase it in individuals, teams and organisations. He will introduce you to the concept of Motivational Maps and how they help us understand and manage this all-important human attribute.

Resilient Leadership – How Does a Skyscraper Survive an Earthquake? Karsten Drath, Leadership Choices
Resilience is the capacity to act constructively when faced with personal and business pressures, to emerge from adversity with renewed strength and vigour. In this presentation, Karsten Drath, describes what we can learn from resilient leaders and how we can apply it to our own lives.

Every delegate will receive their choice of one of the five books discussed and the opportunity to buy others at a significant discount.
