Robert Bree is a multi-disciplinary strategy facilitator who can guide you and your team through highly productive growth, marketing and strategy workshops.
Rob’s broad experience makes him one of very few marketing workshop facilitators who can work equally effectively with marketers, managers and operational teams and other external partners e.g. agencies designers, researchers etc.
We use a relaxed and open style in our workshops creating an environment in which people feel both confident to contribute and able to improve their skills.
Our marketing and strategic workshops will entertain and inspire your team helping them improve their own skills in a lively, highly interactive style that feels more like a day out than a day working.
The goal is to get the team thinking differently about your business and its challenges through thought-provoking and challenging perspectives on business growth, marketing and commerce.
