We had the privilege of having the inimitable Prof Geoff Bick as our Marketing Lecturer during Module 3 of the EMBA. For many students, this intense, Honours level exposure to Marketing is a completely new experience.
With 25 years of Marketing, Business, Advertising, Communications et al experience under my belt, I must say that I have seldom enjoyed a lecture series as much as I did the two week intensive course with Geoff.
He is a seasoned marketer, a disruptive innovator, has a WICKED sense of humour and is a MASTER at his craft. As part of our ' action learning' process, there was a requirement for each modular group [ 6 members per group] to submit at least 4 of the assigned Case Studies.
This entailed studying a brief and answering or analysing questions specific to the brief. I was fortunate to draw the kulula.com story out of the hat - and decided to have some fun with the Presentation as well as Analysis document.
I kept my peers in class - my audience - in mind - a great many engineers, CA's, metalurgists, PhD's etc - who had not been exposed, in great detail to the principles of marketing.
SO - I had some fun and learned quite a bit about the ' birth' of kulula.com.
A light-hearted piece of work that provided me with some space for creativity and just playing with my studies.
Aimed at anyone who is interested in...well...an interesting story - see the brief as well as commentary within the document - as well as the basics of disruptive innovation and how to take a brand to market within financial as well as economic limitations.
