Small Scale Development Programme: Wales

Explore a mix of strategic marketing skills with resources inspired by the new programme from the AMA

The Small Scale Development Programme: Wales (SSDP: Wales) is a brand-new programme from the AMA for 2022. It’s built to help small organisations get the skills and knowledge they need to take a strategic, effective approach to their marketing.

The programme is spread across six workshops, that focus on five essential topics:

  • Marketing strategy framework and Vision/Mission
  • Brand
  • Understanding your audiences
  • Setting objectives and identifying strategies
  • Planning communications

Below you can explore a selection of curated resources that supplement the workshops undertaken within the programme.

Please note: Whilst this programme has a focus on small organisations based in Wales, these resources are suitable for anyone looking to improve their strategic marketing knowledge.

SSDP: Wales is sponsored by Ticketsolve, in partnership with Creu Cymru and with funding from Arts Council of Wales.
