Our Approach

our workshops are fast-paced and highly interactive with an emphasis on relevance and immediate applicability


we combine learning, activities, and discussion. 

LEARNING Each topic will be introduced with concepts and frameworks, illustrated with use cases from global markets.


ACTIVITIES We’ll be inviting you to work in teams on group exercises through the two days. The exercises will immerse you in creating innovative content and campaign ideas to refine and amplify your launch plans.


DISCUSSION The workshop is a safe place to think expansively, share new ideas and be open to making mistakes.


Where some workshops simply teach the principles of digital marketing, Burn The Sky takes a PRACTICAL approach which is based on TEAM BASED learning. Our clients learn the principles and apply them to real-world marketing situations, through group projects,  through shared online simulations, through face to face group activities.


We ask participants to bring a ‘test and learn’ mindset and a desire to challenge their assumptions – about customer insights, how digital channels work, about how they can work with others to create groundbreaking customer experiences in the future.
