  • Is there an opportunity for interaction?

    A key difference vs some other programs are five live, interactive Zoom video sessions with your brandgym coach and fellow participants. These allow you to connect with people from your cohort and work together on how to apply the principles and tools.

  • How much time do I need for each module?

    Each weekly module takes roughly 2 hours, to do when you want each week, split between online content and quick exercises to apply the principles on a brand of your choice as you go. There is a quick 'fitness check' before and after each module, so you can see your progress. Follow-up reading of several blog posts allows you to further explore the key themes with contemporary examples.

  • Is there an exam at the end of the program?

    This is a practical program rather than a theoretical course. There are mini quizzes to check understanding, but the program ends with a brand growth plan, not an exam.

  • Can the program be customised?

    For team sign-ups of 20+ participants, there's an opportunity to have a company-specific program, with your own exclusive interactive Zoom workshops. For bigger groups of 30+ you can also add additional content, such as "What does this means for us?" sections.

  • How often is the program updated?

    The program is built in a modular way so we can regularly update it with contemporary, cutting edge case studies that keep you up to speed with developments in marketing and branding.

  • Do I get a certificate at the end?

    You sure do! On completion you will become a certified Master of Brand Growth, with the program having been independently and rigorously reviewed by CPD Standards. The course qualifies for 25 CPD hours.
