A series of funded workshops for SMEs

Enscite is a partnership between the University of Derby and Aston University. The programme supports Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) within the aerospace, rail or automotive supply chain. Enscite is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Business strategy and planning are crucial components in developing a successful organisation. The tools and techniques you will learn from these workshops will help you respond to the rapidly evolving, modern business environment. 

Workshop dates and times

Small to medium-size businesses are increasingly recognising the role and contribution of marketing in achieving their performance targets. These sessions provide an overview of fundamental topics, such as:

  • Marketing strategy and tactics
  • Delivering differentiated value propositions
  • Developing and communicating your brand
  • Creating copy and content that delivers impact and results

Why are these workshops useful?

  • Understand the four key disciplines of marketing that will support your competitive strategy and achievement of your future growth targets
  • Enhance your ability to understand and effectively target your customer with relevant and timely content throughout their buying journey
  • Implement processes to gather customer insight and develop differentiated propositions that deliver value to your customers
  • Encourage a whole business outlook and approach to marketing rather than view marketing as a separate function of the business

Workshop dates and times

Behind every great company is an efficient operations team, and effective supply chain management is a crucial aspect of operational performance. Together the two functions can develop coherent strategies and make data-driven decisions to improve organisational performance and subsequently, improve profitability.
