By teaching you the process, this Intensive provides knowledge and insight applicable to your future campaigns and outreach programs. And our Training Resources can be adapted to serve your evolving economic development goals.

I have taught this process to over 45 cities from 12 countries. Small towns with 7,500 residents to cities with over 1million people, have been able to apply this process to within their communities to effect sustainable change.

Optimum Learning Environment

In order to really work through each of the Training Resources, the Place Branding Marketing Intensive is limited to 12 people. Your department is likely much smaller than 12 – it may only be you! Many of our Intensive clients bring together colleagues from complimentary departments and institutions to co-host the workshop.
