Once a year, DropZone Marketing hosts a Marketing Mastermind workshop taking DZ managers and marketers through the process of creating a marketing plan for their DZ's. The information shared is insightful and will set DZ's up for success by learning where to spend their marketing dollars and how to execute a marketing plan that makes sense.
Our next Mastermind will be hosted in February of 2017.
"Even though I was the daughter of a man (Roger Nelson) who pioneered how we perceive skydiving from the 'tent-and-trailer' to the 'resort-like' facilities, I know times have changed and there's always room to learn. With the encouragement of my husband, I recently attended James La Barrie's, "DZ Marketing Mastermind" seminar and was simply - amazed!"
