I spoke at London Strategy Unit’s 1UP training course for junior and aspiring Planners earlier this year. LSU are running another 1UP, plus a new 2UP for more experienced Planners this Autumn so as an LSU training evangelist I thought I’d better spread the word.
1UP: The strategist as original thinker is about the practical skills that junior planning/strategy types need in their job and will use straight away: confidence to deliver presentations, ways to get inspiration for ideas, techniques to help manage client relationships plus the chance to have a crack at a real client brief and get feedback. Speakers look every bit as good as last time with a creative strategists, BRIT school teacher, technologist and Russell all speaking, as well as LSU staff and partners.
2UP: The strategist as salesman moves on from this and teaches the sales skills every plannery strategist should have under their belt to help them do work that in turn helps clients sell more.
Places for both events are IMHO fairly priced at £795 + vat for two full days with great speakers and practical exercises. Booking info is here.
Andreea from LSU also tells me that they are holding back a few places at 1UP for interns, students or job hunters at a special rate of £100. If you’d like one, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details explaining why you qualify and they’ll pick out the most worthy.
