Testimonials

I really enjoyed the course, the content was excellent, with the right balance of theory and real world examples. The templates for ‘brand on a page’ and ‘strategy on a page’ are tools that everyone can implement quickly and are a great physical take away. Encouraging webcam use and individual participation worked well and kept every member of the class engaged throughout.

As a marketer with several years’ experience I found the CIM Managing the Brand course hugely insightful and relevant allowing me to reflect on brands within our portfolio that are at different stages in there life cycle. It allowed me to step back and look at the basic requirements the brand needs to succeed, provoked thought and challenge, highlighted where we have current gaps in brand fundamentals and inspired me to focus on long term goals rather than just quick wins. I would highly recommend it to anyone within marketing whether at early stages of their career or even those more senior that would require a refresher. The virtual course managed to be incredibly engaging with a good mix of case studies, personal involvement and conversation with Vanessa’s unquestionably passion and knowledge projected through the computer screen.

The 2 day CIM ‘Managing the Brand’ course provided a great insight in to the core elements of Brand Management, which will be invaluable in my day to day role as a Brand Manager. The course content strikes a good balance of theoretical tools/techniques, relevant case studies and discussion based activities – and also draws nicely on the practical experiences of the class and of the tutor Vanessa. I would certainly recommend the course in virtual form, with Vanessa’s high energy and approachable teaching style creating an ideal environment for distance learning.
