Two ways to get better results from your staff

As the end of the year is approaches, it’s a time to take stock of where we are and make sure we are prepared to face the challenges of a new year. Are you certain that your staff is ready? Do they have all the tools and insight at their disposal? Could they do with a little help and investment from you?

FIPP offers two courses for magazine media professionals who want to improve their skills and achieve better results.

Magazine Brand Management Certificate (MBMC)
Successful magazine brand management requires the coordination and integration of many disparate disciplines such as strategic planning, editorial, advertising, building the brand, sales and distribution, finance, international licensing and digital platforms.

The FIPP MBMC is a practical, experience-based, modular programme. It covers the knowledge areas and management skills required by todays’ publishing professionals. One of the MBMC’s unique benefits is that the face-to-face contact allows you to learn from peers and develop international business relationships that will last you a lifetime.

Find out more about the MBMC course modules or watch the MBMC video to hear what previous participants said about the course.

Special offer: send a member of staff to the MBMC and you can let your HR manager join for half price*.

This allows them to not only gain a better insight into the challenges of publishing, but also enables them to make a more informed decision who to send on future courses.

Executive Programme for Innovation and Change (EPIC)
Designed for executives with significant management and strategic responsibilities in their companies, who are likely to be CEO’s or Board members of small and medium sized enterprises, or divisional level executives at larger companies, EPIC aims to help these managers strategically take their companies through these times of digital disruption.

Teaching will be led by a world-class business faculty from Oxford University’s Saïd Business School who will draw on a wide range of case studies from many industries, with additional input from senior magazine media experts. It will also aim to draw on experts from other industries who have successfully transitioned through digital disruption.

The course is divided into five core areas:

  • Accepting the challenges of a disrupted industry
  • Understanding quantum strategy
  • Leading Innovation
  • Discovering (and improving) your leadership style and qualities
  • Leading through change
