Why we wrote this course

We’ve designed ‘Unlocking Amazing Briefs’ to teach marketers how to write and deliver much better briefs and get much better results.  

Briefing is critical if you want great work.  But briefing is hard and most people aren’t taught how to do it properly.  In fact, many marketers are criticised for writing poor briefs by their agencies, as you’ll see in this report by The Better Briefs Project. ‘Unlocking Amazing Briefs’ is here to fix that!
