Polaris and TribalVision Provide first Market Smarter for Manufacturers Workshop Series to Rhode Island
WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND
TribalVision Managing Director Chris Ciunci will be leading a four-part Market Smarter workshop series with Polaris Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Polaris MEP). The workshop series will be held at Polaris MEP’s Providence headquarters every Thursday morning between 8-10AM in the month of May and is designed specifically for manufacturers to equip them with the marketing tool kit needed to compete and grow on the local and global stage.
The workshop series will bring manufacturers through a marketing journey that begins with the changing role of marketing and ends with more granular tactical initiatives that manufacturers should be leveraging for long-term success. Additional topics will include the building of a strategic marketing plan, and the leveraging of cost-effective tools that every manufacturer should know. Spanning a spectrum of marketing topics, the workshop series promises to be both informative and actionable for Rhode Island manufacturers.
Chris Ciunci commented on the series, stating, “Manufacturers often sell to such a niche audience that many I speak with feel that marketing is an ineffective, impractical activity to grow their business. My goal is for every attendee to walk away with a changed mindset and a more positive, clear outlook regarding the ways marketing can help them achieve their growth objectives.” Chris also described how excited he was to be able to work with the manufacturing community in his home state of Rhode Island.
Polaris MEP’s Center Director, Christian Cowan, is also looking forward to the Market Smarter for Manufacturers workshop series, saying, “We constantly hear from manufacturing companies about the need for top line growth tools. This TribalVision series is targeted at just that, and we are excited to finally bring a robust program to this group.” He further commented on how this learning platform is at the core of Polaris MEP’s mission to help Rhode Island manufacturers grow and compete in today’s ever-changing business landscape.
