Over the course of the last year, NBS has been delivering a wide range of webinars for both construction product manufacturers and specifiers. As part of that offering, we’re also running a series of marketing masterclasses designed specifically with manufacturers in mind. 

Check out the webinars below to learn more about any of these areas of marketing, and visit our Events page to register for our future marketing masterclasses. 

What specifiers want from CPD

Earlier this year, we surveyed over 350 architects and other specifiers from a wide range of large and smaller organisations, including professionals at the start of their careers and experienced decision makers in senior roles.

We asked them to share their views on how they prefer to undertake CPD, their opinion of RIBA-approved CPD and what they want to see from CPD providers in the future. The results have now been published in this year's RIBA CPD Report. This webinar covers key insights from the report and how CPD could become a key part of your business' marketing strategy.
