King III principles

4.1 The board should be responsible for the governance of risk.


Advertising is often mistaken for Marketing within a business. However, marketing is far more substantive than just the advertising of your business and its offerings. This misperception disregards the contribution that brands and branding make to the intangible assets of your business – up to one third of annual turnover. It also underestimates the role that marketing plays in building (or diluting) and maintaining the reputation of your business.
This one day programme is aimed at providing directors with insight into marketing as a critical function within the business. It will also offer delegates the opportunity to discuss and deliberate over examples of companies that appreciate the importance of guarding one of their biggest assets – their brand.
The course will also consider the important link between marketing and risk management – What are the legal risks related to marketing? Is your brand registered and protected? How important is the securitisation of your brand(s)? Which elements of marketing should you as director focus on?
