  • Brand challenge workshops

    Strong strategic brand plans require good cross-functional input to get customer-focused analytical and strategic thinking aligned to the brand planning framework. A brand challenge workshop provides the space, challenge and support for cross-functional brand teams to refine and strengthen their brand plan:

    • Cross-functional brand teams prepare key elements of their strategic brand plan presentations, and get feedback and challenge from Ashfield Insight & Performance’s senior marketing consultants
    • The brand teams present their full plan to the other teams and receive feedback and questions from their colleagues, supported by a brand plan checklist
    • By the end of the workshop, the brand teams have a clear action plan, which will enable them to finalize their strategic brand plans

  • Live action workshops

    Live action workshops provide an opportunity for cross-functional teams to work together and apply more in-depth thinking to address issues or unlock opportunities for their brand in real time, with challenge and support from an expert Ashfield Insight & Performance facilitator. This approach:

    • Has an immediate impact for the brand, achieving tangible results during the workshop
    • Identifies any remaining gaps / information needs, and action plans to resolve them
    • Enables the brand to benefit from their customer knowledge and experience of the broader cross-functional team, and address key issues or unlock opportunities
    • Ensures better alignment across functions in developing and delivering the brand strategy or solutions

  • Business simulation workshops

    We can develop highly relevant business simulations and facilitate workshops to reinforce and encourage the positive behaviors of  good collaborative cross-functional working. One example is a simulation to get a multi-functional, customer-facing team to work effectively together towards territory or account goals such as achieving market access for a brand launch. During the course of these business simulation workshops:

    • The multi-functional, customer-facing team works through a series of exercises to identify, align and deliver value-based opportunities for their brand
      • Some exercises focus on business analysis, planning and communication skills
      • Other exercises specifically address the importance of team behaviors

  • Brand development consultancy
