1. Presentation Skills – telling the story
Make your Message Memorable
In business today, it’s not enough to internalize knowledge; we are constantly called upon to share our expertise through speeches, presentations and pitches. While facts, figures and bar charts appeal to the logic of the left brain, they do not provide a clear pathway to the passion of the right. In business, we need stories for our most important work: to gain credibility, persuade, share values, avoid costly mistakes, cope with change, obtain resources and make complex ideas easier to understand.
“If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” – Rudyard Kipling
2. The Art of the Product Plan – with a logical approach
Concept to Consumer
From the brief to the shelf, delivering great product to the market requires great execution. Every team needs to understand the product process and respect the effect changes have on the organization.
“In factories we manufacture products. In stores, we sell hope.” – Charles Revlon
The product assortment strategy has everything to do with communicating the brand position, creating differentiation and driving profit. It starts with consumer insights, drives innovation, considers operational and financial limits, and enables storytelling at point-of-purchase.
3. The Science of Profitability – with a creative twist
“The greatest profit, is to make your own gain.” – Auliq Ice
Memorizing formulas will never convey the whole story of product performance. But, knowing the levers of profitability will allow you to create strategies that drive financial performance. From understanding the P&L and retail math, to visualizing turnover and flow, we can help non-financial team members appreciate the importance of metrics.
