Market Focus exists to help and support senior managers and their teams to build winning strategies and value propositions so that they can deliver sustainable growth.

It looks like social distancing and travel restrictions will mean that virtual working with our clients will be the norm for quite a while yet.

Over the last few months, the Market Focus team has been able to work on projects with clients using a variety of online platforms.

We have proved that online teaching, coaching and consulting of teams and individuals is definitely possible.  We have structured projects in smaller, more frequent ‘bites’ and the quality of the output has been impressive.

“It worked better than expected, it was really very effective, high level of engagement from participants, very good exchanges.  The exercise was excellent, very structured with very helpful coaching to stretch the thinking of the participants.”  Global Commercial Excellence Director Glass Business.

“Pleasantly surprised by the engagement level and whilst talking about our customers you could hear the lightbulb moment when the sales team realised what we were offering to customers was not exactly what they valued.”  North American Materials Business Director.

“I am amazed at how effective it is to work on these types of projects online, especially with the regular assignments and feedback from an industrial marketing professional.”  Global Speciality Additives Business Manager.

If you have been delaying a key project due to social distancing guidelines, please get in touch as we can help you achieve the same results online.
