The Creative Leader's
Guide to Strategy
The course that teaches you a more human approach to strategy and gives you
the skills, tools and resources to become a purposeful creative leader.
Frameworks, case studies and resources that demystify strategy and help you begin your journey towards creative leadership.
The Strategy Masterclass is an online Masterclass for emerging Designers and Strategists that provides the necessary foundations to develop skills in strategy. I have taken 25 years of industry experience as a Strategy Director, Creative Director and agency owner and packaged the fundamentals of strategy into this Masterclass.
This Masterclass lays out the foundation in video modules—each containing simple lessons—that will prepare you for diving deep into specific areas of strategy later on. If you're interested in doing more strategic work or evolving your career towards a bigger, broader discipline that solves real-world business, communication and design challenges—this is where to start.
You will learn practical strategy frameworks, how to use them in your work and how to apply them in your journey towards leadership roles in strategy and creative industries. This Foundation Masterclass is the first step in learning how to do work in brand strategy, communications strategy and digital strategy.
“Strategy shouldn't be the domain of the few — by learning the foundation of strategy you will be able to access other areas of strategy development with ease.”
I'll walk through case studies to show you how strategy and creativity were used to achieve results.
"I am loving this course. It is self-paced – it suits the spurts of energy I can commit. I love that it is written by a practitioner rather than a theorist – the learnings are tried and tested. I love that it’s a resource for life. I can dip in and out of the further reading well into the future.
Needless to say, it’s got great content, well written and it looks good too. What’s not to love?"
Carol Mackay — Agency owner
"The Strategy Masterclass helped me bring a more coherent structure to my approach to strategy development.
The reference material is excellent, and I’ve already referred back to course notes to help with current work. It’s stuff that should be taught as a core subject in any design discipline."
