Business Marketing & Strategy.

Some examples of the types of services PHD Marketing can provide:

Vision & Values

Many small to mid size organisations quickly expand without thinking about what their future business could look like. This lack of clear business vision can ultimately hamper growth, as well as employee engagement.

PHD Marketing provides workshops, 1:1 coaching and employee dialogue sessions to help you answer critical strategy questions and then coherently organises the answers into a relevant Vision & Values data set for use in internal and external communications to drive your strategy.

Organisational Development

Jo Stephenson has worked with numerous business leaders on organisational development challenges.

From employee engagement to business prioritisation and restructuring, employee mentoring to innovation stage gate management, PHD Marketing & Strategy have the experts on hand to support you.

Meeting & Brainstorm Facilitation

Sometimes an independent voice, a fresh set of eyes, or a neutral party in the room can help managers or teams of employees resolve key issues and decisions.

PHD Marketing can also host your meeting off site at our West Yorkshire offices to help neutralise the challenge. We can provide facilitators on a half day or daily basis to host your meeting and have expertise in facilitating brainstorming workshops to deliver out of the box thinking.
