This session is designed to show those in Marketing how senior management views financial success and how such metrics can be leveraged by Marketing to demonstrate their increased value in the organization. Group work, team discussions along with case based/real world examples will be used to show how Marketing professionals can tell a “financial story” to senior management and demonstrate the power of Marketing and brands in the marketplace.
