Don’t live in New York, London, or São Paulo? Neither do I! You don’t have to be super connected or in the Planning inner circle to be a part of PlannerU.
PlannerU is designed to demystify strategic planning by providing specific and actionable tools, not just theory, opinions and well-worn case studies. It focuses on the "hows" and not just the "whats" of brand strategy.
This isn't a giant Google Drive with a bunch of miscellaneous frameworks and templates. PlannerU puts all of those things together into integrated courses designed to provide deeper knowledge on how to go from Point A to Z.
Trusted by strategists from hundreds of companies, including:
Although Dan is still very much at the helm of The PARAGRAPH Project, the insights and strategy firm he founded in 2005, he wanted to start PlannerU to make formal training in Account Planning easier, less expensive and more accessible than it’s ever been.
Dan has always been a bit of a reclusive strategist. For the most part, living off the social media grid and immersing himself in the work. Odds are you’ve never heard of him or his company. But perhaps that just might mean that some of the curriculum he shares at PlannerU could be new to you as well.
That’s his goal, anyway.READ DAN'S STORY
