Workshop Details: Real world. Real results.

The workshops and activities are based on the creative development process at an international ad agency. They use exactly the same material used in the five star rated Live! Creative Workshops presented by Steve McNamara.

- The workshops contain proprietary information on direct response and branding techniques. So you'll get rare insights into the creative development process, from initial strategy through creative briefs to the techniques that work best.

- The workshops are an excellent value for real-world, professional training. The cost is a fraction - a small fraction - of comparable seminars or classes. And they work just as well for large groups as for individuals.

Unconventional Uses

The workshops make excellent educational presentations to clients, prospects and local business organizations. Teach to sell. Raise your profile. Win new business.

- Present "Lunch & Learn" seminars. Your place or the client's conference room. This is a proven way to get more business from current clients.

- Co-sponsor a seminar with your local ad club or chamber of commerce. As both an educational event and a way to recruit new members.

- Conduct a campaign development day. Each activity book takes you step-by-step through the creative process. In the end you'll have a complete campaign - or three - and scores of individual ads. This process works for individuals or teams.

Agencies such as Ogilvy, Publicis and JWT use the Creative Brief presentations to conduct one-day staff development workshops. For the price, it's the best professional training program on the planet.

There are many ways to use the workshops, and you'll use them for many years to come. You can train your team. Kick-start brainstorming sessions. And learn a trick or 20 yourself.
