There is no chalk and talk in this fast moving workshop. Start with a discussion around what makes good (and not so good) campaigns before taking a deep dive into the four foundations of a solid campaign, and developing your core value proposition.

You’ll then be divided into teams and provided with a brief. Throughout the remainder of the day you will work this up into a full pitch, with short breaks to discuss the customer journey, and work with your expert ‘Creative Director’ who will help you visualise your campaign in the limited time available. At the end of the day you will present to a panel drawn from digital businesses and MMU’s teaching and student faculty. Prizes will be available for the winners.

This is a very hands on participative day – you will leave having absorbed new information, assimilated it, experienced practical application and reflected on the resulting work.

  • Understand the key elements in constructing a campaign
