Face-To-Face Workshop:

This half day face-to-face workshop created by Best Selling marketing author Therese Tarlinton will accelerate your sales and get your marketing in shape.  By getting really clear on your customers, your value proposition and becoming a memorable brand, you will have a path to craft an effective campaign you can put into action yourself.

Combining real world marketing examples with checklists and worksheets, you will walk away with the tools you need to create, plus where to speak to your potential customers so you aren’t wasting your time on the wrong platforms.  With the bonus of being face to face with a marketing professional where you can get feedback on your ideas for your business and ask all those burning questions.

If you’ve ever wanted to hire an agency, but don’t have the budget, this workshop will deliver you the clarity and confidence you need for your marketing.  You will be surrounded by other business owners just like yourself and buzzing with ideas.


Location: Business Sydney – Level 23, 45 Clarence Street, Sydney NSW 2000

Time: 9:15am (for a 9:30am start) – 12:30pm


  • Identify your ideal customers – we will do a ‘deep dive’ on which customers you like working with and are profitable, how you can assist them and the channels to communicate effectively to build trust and get referrals.
  • Define your brand – articulate what is unique about your company and your product and be able to clearly differentiate your brand and make it consistent across all your marketing.
  • Create a campaign outline – let’s put into action the right messaging, on the right channels, define the marketing assets that you need, how to build them and the tactics to grow your sales.
