  • East Coast Bullbars Clontarf Australia (map)

We close our Year with one of Australia's greatest speakers on marketing and a winner of TEC Speaker of the Year three times, having presented to over 300 groups, Gary Bertwhistle.

TEC and KEY members are executives and business owners from a diverse range of industries who meet monthly to support each other and address the challenges of leading in these increasingly uncertain times.

The speaker session is the first part of a monthly all-day meeting and is attended by between 14 and 16 people. During the afternoon, the KEY members continue with their Executive Session. Our speakers are subject experts focused on stimulating active discussion with the group.

The Topic

Marketing Warfare' covers the critical thinking that goes into marketing and brand battles – how to do battle in the market with competitors. Never before have markets been tougher. It’s competitive, margins are being squeezed and competitors want your market share…or you want theirs. If you don’t know the rules of battle, how can you be sure you are doing the right things?

Based on the strategies of military strategists like Sun Tzu, Musashi, Claude Von Clausewitz and the other great military leaders of the past, learn the rules of business battle. If you're up against competitors, then this session will teach you the rules of engagement. If you are fortunate enough to be in a position where you have no competitors, this session arms you with the necessary tips, tools and thinking to be able to defend your turf when they come. With real, useable case studies from every category and industry, this session allows you to capitalise on 'The Vibe', and build a strong brand that can win at battle or withstand attack.
