About this course

What your team will learn

In order to decide what plan of action to take and to inform any strategy, you’ll need to review different sources of information and learn to interpret it – leading to an actionable insight. Advertising strategists sometimes define an insight as a brand or product ‘truth’. The ability to interpret and analyse information and use it to inform your decisions and your creative ideas creates opportunities whatever your discipline. In this workshop we’ll explore sources of information, what an insight is and how to use it as the basis for a creative idea or solution to a problem. We recommend you take it alongside our How To Be A Strategy Ninja workshop where we share theories and frameworks for devising strategy.


What your team will learn

Insights enable you to better understand what motivates your customer or audience, to get your message to land, and to act as a robust platform for creative ideas or solutions.
