What is the aim of this course?
This course will help you drastically improve your knowledge and skills in improving and developing sales and marketing through a series of practical cases. It is designed for people who want to become management consultants, or business analysts or have to run and optimize sales and marketing on daily basis. In the course you will learn 3 things:
How to understand the main challenges in sales and marketing
How to improve sales and marketing in order to increase margin and profit
Where to look for savings and improvements, how to calculate potential savings in Excel and implement them
This course is based on my 15 years of experience as a consultant in top consulting firms and as a Board Member responsible for strategy, performance improvement, and turn-arounds in the biggest firms from Retail, FMCG, SMG, B2B, and services sectors that I worked for. I have carried out or supervised over 90 different performance improvement projects in different industries that generated a total of 2 billion in additional EBITDA. On the basis of what you will find in this course, I have trained in person over 100 consultants, business analysts, and managers who now are Partners in PE and VC funds, Investment Directors and Business Analysts in PE and VC, Operational Directors, COO, CRO, CEO, Directors in Consulting Companies, Board Members, etc. On top of that my courses on Udemy were already taken by more than 182 000 students including people working in EY, Walmart, Booz Allen Hamilton, Adidas, Naspers, Alvarez & Marsal, PwC, Dell, Walgreens, Orange, and many others.
I teach through case studies, so you will have a lot of lectures showing examples of analyses, and tools that we use. To every lecture, you will find attached (in additional resources) the Excels as well as additional presentations, and materials shown in the lectures so as a part of this course you will also get a library of ready-made analyses that can, with certain modifications, be applied by you or your team in your work.
Why have I decided to create this course?
Sales and marketing differ drastically in every company and it usually takes a management consultant a lot of time to learn and understand the business during a consulting project. By giving you exposure to real-life cases and analyses I want to improve your awareness and skills in analyzing complex sales and marketing analysis. Thanks to this course, you will know what and how to do during a consulting project devoted to the sales and marketing area.
To sum it up, I believe that if you want to build or to find improvements in any business you should master techniques related to analyzing and optimizing sales and marketing. That is why. I highly recommend this course not only to consultants or business analysts that have to advise their customers but also to owners, founders of businesses as well as sales managers, and directors.
In what way will you benefit from this course?
The course is a practical, step-by-step guide loaded with tons of analyses, tricks, and hints that will significantly improve the speed with which you find and analyze sales and marketing. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from my own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. Our intention is that thanks to the course you will learn:
How to understand sales and marketing in different business models
How to optimize it
Where to look for savings and improvements
How to calculate the impact of proposed changes in Excel
You can also ask me any question either through the discussion field or by messaging me directly.
