A. The founder of the Marketing School has a long history of research into marketing for Shopping Centres and this research will continue to provide information which will be used to regularly update courses.
Q. We have finished the courses, how can we keep up to date with the new trends/ideas?
A. The courses are designed to teach participants how to do this; however students completing courses can access new information by way of attendance at the "Boardroom" events held at Lyn Flannery & Associates.
Q. How do I know if I qualify to do the course?
A. Anyone is welcome to join at any level - the subject matter is exclusive to Shopping Centre marketing and is designed in a format that suits an experienced marketer or a beginner. This is because the research that is undertaken by the school's Director is up to the minute and immediately actionable. For this reason no one is at a disadvantage when attending any part of the course or any of the one day seminars. Content is pitched at the level that is needed.
Note: The courses are designed to accommodate all levels of marketing and centre management personnel. As well we run special courses and have had great success in training those in an administration role as well as someone not yet in the industry. After attending the course these participants were able to secure positions in marketing roles within Shopping Centres.
