Workshop Details: Real world. Real results.

The workshops are based on the creative development process at an international ad agency, and are exactly the same presentations 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 Creative Manager 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.

- The 3 workshop modules are each divided into sections. The new creative brief workshop, for example, has 5 sections:

1 - Why Write A Creative Brief?
2 - How to Collect Information, Extract Insights
3 - How To Write A Classic Creative Brief
4 - Advanced Brief Writing Tips
5 - Workshop Activities on PDF

Unconventional Uses

The multimedia 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 module 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 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 Creative Manager multimedia presentations, 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.

All workshops are subject to revision or change.
