Professionals who are strong subject matter experts but lack the formal marketing training to help them define the right products and learn how to bring them to market.
How we work
We use “Applied Action Learning”; we start from specific business needs (Applied) for which we create specific assignments & exercises (Action) where students need to apply the new concepts and frameworks (Learning).
To achieve this, we begin by conducting a series of stakeholder interviews, most often with senior executives, sales management, and HR. This helps us get a clear understanding of your strategy and culture, your customers and products. Our goal is to get a deep insight into your specific needs and get a good understanding of what’s working and what’s not.
We then organize a survey with the participants, to map their skill base, training needs & growth areas. Equipped with these insights, we engage with line management, to complement these self-assessments and gain profound insight in the learning journey that is required to get your team to the next level.
Why partner with Skein
Skein is a group of B2B marketing experts who combine both academic insights with hands-on practical experience. Our trainers all held senior positions in international companies. This allows them to apply current scientific insights to real-life business. Making sure your professionals don’t get stuck in yet another theoretical training.
Skein firmly routes its learning methods in the contemporary insights of ‘Learning Science’. Multiple independent studies confirm the value of ‘active learning’ methods as being the most efficient method for learners to reach the required level of understanding. A critical component of active learning is that the learner, rather than the instructor, is at the centre and focus of all activities in the classroom through involving them in gathering information, thinking, and problem solving.
