Project Management Workshop

This one-day interactive workshop delivers really immersive training for anyone project managing marketing projects. Using our process framework, a real case study and project documentation, attendees complete exercises at each phase of the project cycle from scoping to evaluation.

This problem based learning is a great method for project management training. We present a problem that needs a resolution – a key skill for any Project Manager.


Resource Management Workshop

In this unique, engaging and practical workshop you’ll learn how resource management can positively transform internal operations and improve profit margins.

If you want to add 10% to your bottom line, improve project health, drive staff retention, align your recruitment and training plans to your business pipeline then this workshop is highly relevant for you.

Content Production Workshop

Our one-day Content Production workshop with film at its core, provides attendees with a deeper understanding of planning, production and the delivery of filmed content plus the associated documentation to successfully manage legal business affairs. We look at all types of content from small-scale video productions to TV broadcast.

Taken by Industry expert Leila Bartlam, the workshop is perfect for anyone looking to add moving image production to their skill set.

Account Management: Advanced Basics Workshop

Our Advanced Basics workshop is an in-depth study of the successful client relationship – and how to control it.

We’ll take you through best practice techniques in account management and highlight the markers of a winning rapport with clients. Through interactive exercises, you’ll discover how to use your awareness of these signs to continually develop your relationships with clients and, where necessary, overcome the inevitable challenges in your day-to-day dealings.

Account Management Workshop

Great account handling is about building long-term, trusting relationships with colleagues, clients and third parties. Trust must be earned. Without it the role can be lonely, pressurised and frustrating.

During this half-day workshop you’ll work through a chest of agency war stories and learn proven account handling methods. You’ll leave with a new sense of purpose and an appreciation of the bigger picture – as well as an eye for the crucial detail. A timely refresher for some, a lifesaver for others.

Understanding and selling creative Workshop

Our one-day workshop is designed to enable account teams to work more effectively and productively with their creative teams.
Attendees will look at the principles of creative problem solving and learn ways to stimulate, inspire, recognise and sell great ideas.

Digital Delivery Workshop

Our one-day Digital Delivery workshop with user experience at its core, provides attendees with a deeper understanding of the digital delivery process, project methodologies and associated documentation to successfully manage a range of digital scopes of work, from small scale online advertising to more complex builds.

Alongside the delivery framework, the immersive workshop breaks down and explodes some of the myths of the digital world explaining the many acronyms that exist and understanding the make-up of the digital team.

Print Production Workshop

Our one-day Print Production workshop is hugely interactive. Using our print library, attendees have the opportunity to review and explore print formats, processes and finishes.

The workshop focuses on managing creative print Collateral, Press Advertising and Out of Home.

Finally our trainer works with everyone to write artwork briefs and print specifications using physical examples.

Arthur London

I’ve attended two workshops with the Industry School and I was thoroughly impressed with the quality.
The content is genuinely relevant and inspiring and I’ve implemented many aspects of what I’ve learnt within my agency, and have a few more in the pipeline in 2018! The trainers are clearly very experienced and knowledgeable in their fields, and conveyed their knowledge in an interesting and interactive way – no question was too small and they were friendly and helpful!
