Business Development & Marketing

The Business Development & Marketing (BDM) Practice Group aims to bring together like-minded professionals with similar objectives. Members of the group have experience, enthusiasm and the desire to add value to their business, sharing knowledge, insights, resources, tactics, techniques, best practices and ideas with fellow colleagues, as well as utilising the latest technologies and marketing techniques to maximise performance, launch new projects and create new opportunities for business development.

Goals for Practice Group Members:

  • Exchange information to find better approaches and solutions to clients’ issues;
  • Exchange ideas, experiences, and views to further strengthen communication among fellow members;
  • Stay connected to international information and issues relevant to areas of their practice; and
  • Gain insight into specialized issues.

Our mission is to reach these goals by providing high-level PG programmes at GGI conferences and events, and by contributing relevant content in GGI publications.
