This course was founded on the premise that good work does not sell itself.

The objective of this course is to save the agency money, to get ideas sold in first time, and avoid needless rebriefs.

It is designed to be very interactive, and the structure covers all aspects of preparation, through to the actual sell, and then keeping the work sold.  Delegates will get the opportunity to practice how it should be done.

The course includes discussing and understanding the importance of ideas, how to judge the work, and how clients judge work, how to prepare for a presentation, and then presenting the work itself.
