It is widely recognized that marketers need to update their skills and knowledge throughout their careers, but from an organizational perspective it is even more important in a downturn to improve or consolidate business performance. The investment in a marketing team in such times may have an important motivational aspect in staying positive and help retain top talent.
However, the nature of training and career development through qualifications has evolved to become more flexible, focused on-demand, what we call continuing professional development. Marketing practitioners can rarely afford large blocks of time away from the office and two evenings per week at a college is a heavy commitment. Global 8 Solutions takes on greater importance with the planning and development in a self-managed way that should be relevant to the progression needs of the individual and the organization.

Development can be provided through seminars, workshops, master classes, conferences and exhibitions, in-company development and private study.
