Marketing 101

The discipline that drives businesses to success. 

Blah Blah Marketing will provide a number of workshops designed to improve your marketing skills and increase your sales team’s productivity.

Customer Service Skills Workshop 

Blah Blah Marketing’s customer service training is a process that involves teaching skills, competencies, and tools needed to better serve customers which will lead to more sales of products and services.

Any employee that interacts and deals with customers is eligible for customer service training. And given how your customers are your best growth opportunity, every employee should be working hard to keep them happy.
As well as the basic customer service skills, there are four key principles of good customer service which they base their training around;

  • Personalised

  • Competent

  • Convenient

  • Proactive

Sales Superstar Workshop
Blah Blah Marketing sales training is a process that involves teaching skills around how to be an effective salesperson. To give your staff the confidence, competencies, and tools to improve their sales skills around your business’s products and services.

Any employee that is selling your product is eligible for sales training – we do advise that the staff member does the 2-hour basic Customer Service Skills Training Programme prior to attending this workshop.

Sales of products and services comes easy to some, and harder for others often it is around understanding your product that you are selling research and identifying reasons for your customers to buy. Once your sales staff have a thorough understanding of their particular product they can become and ‘expert in their field’ and sales is often a lot easier, with some extra tools under their belt to help the process. Sales should be an enjoyable experience for both customer and employee!

Marketing WOF
A 2 hour workshop designed to 
•    Review where their business is at currently with their marketing.
•    Develop a high level marketing plan, suited to their budget, their abilities, their customers and their products.
•    Identify where they need extra training to complete strategy and plan thus supporting business resilience.

Each business will have an overview of the marketing strategy and have a marketing plan going forward to fit with their specific budget/timelines and identified needs. 

Mentoring & Coaching

Are you stuck in a never-ending loop of worrying? 

Do you feel like you spend all of your time working "in" your business rather than "on" it?


Using time-tested methods, you can reignite your drive for business success through our range of mentoring and coaching workshops

Cultivating Resilience
A series of 4 Full Day workshops supported by 6 coaching sessions used to implement the learnings into each business. The first two workshops will be focused on the Business Owner themselves and building individual resilience for them on their business journey. The second two workshops will dig deeper into the process of building a resilient business.

After each workshop, we will host a coaching session via Zoom to help each business owner implement the processes into their business.


There are two further coaching sessions at the end of the program to help problem-solve, apply and tweak the processes for each business owner.

As ongoing support, each business owner will get access to a training portal including training videos and worksheets for each tool taught throughout the program for 6 months.


Resilience Institute

The Resilience Institute was founded in 2002. Their mission is to deliver high-impact, practical, evidence-based and integrated resilience training by bringing together modern preventative medicine, positive psychology, emotional intelligence, and neuroscience.

Hundreds of thousands of executives and professionals have joined their community. They have built healthier bodies, achieved greater levels of emotional intelligence, and have developed stronger minds. Thus, they bring the performance benefits of resilience to work.

Resilient people are calm, energised, engaged, focused and creative. Learned resilience positively influences the way people think about themselves (less worry, hypervigilance, self criticism) and their physical well-being (better sleep, nutrition, fitness, relaxation).
