The School of Marketing



“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”


About us

We pride ourselves on not being a traditional training company.

If you are looking for standard corporate training, we are afraid you’ll be disappointed.  However, if you are looking for training that is facilitative, fun, innovative, useful AND delivers your learning objectives, then let’s talk.

We love working with marketing professionals and small business owners  – helping them to achieve their marketing goals.  

We get very practical with our marketing and give our delegates a chance to practice while they learn. Our trainers are both expert in training and expert in marketing, so we are using these tools day in and day out for our clients as well as training others how to do the same.

You can have as little or as much support as you like.  We even have a team of associates who can help you, if you don’t want to do it all yourself… but we would still recommend that you understand your marketing so that you can make the right choices.

Our Philosophy

Learning should be useful, practical and fun

We like to focus our learning on giving you what you need.  No boring training here!  Our online learning is deliberately short and easy to consume and especially designed for the sole trader and solopreneur.  

Keep it simple

It’s likely that you feel overwhelmed by choices on how to market your business.  We believe that simple is best (and certainly easiest!).  It keeps you focused and is likely the fastest way to getting real results. 

Work smarter, not harder

We believe in working smarter not harder.  To do the actions that work and gets results … and stop doing the ones that don’t.  

On our workshops we always share our marketing toolbox, our favourite tools to help you achieve more in less time when you are marketing for your organisation.
