A series of challenging half day and full day workshops for your team.

Following the success of the MPA Express Academy in 2012, we are proud to offer the schedule of training sessions for Spring/Summer 2013.

Featuring the best of last year, topics requested in our feedback forms and a new 'pitch bootcamp', all training is yet again Manchester-based, teaching practical strategic skills for all levels of brand,
communications and media specialists.

Each session covers a specific skill that will improve the way you develop and sell great ideas. All are hugely interactive and full of inspirational best practices, models and techniques you can instantly adopt.

These are not just for advertising people. Media owners, media planners, PR specialists and design teams have all benefited from the skills and models we provide, and the no-nonsense style of our sessions.

All sessions this summer will be provided by Liz Bielinska and Rebecca Ashley at Planning Express, well known for training strategic skills in the Manchester creative and media community.
