STAGG & FRIENDS continues to expand consultancy expertise

With the appointment of Rubén Leites García and Jens Oppermann, the brand & product experience specialists have brought two new consultants on board to further develop STAGGtraining activities in particular.

The acceptance and success of products and services is always dependent on good advice – whatever the industry. Sustainable and audited qualification concepts are crucial here. Furthermore, certified training courses and tried and test qualification tools are today indicators of a brand's quality and reliability. For this reason, companies are increasingly providing training for their sales and consultancy staff – and focusing more on online training, digital platforms, and how to dovetail these consistently with live components and face-to-face training sessions. In order to respond optimally to the clearly growing demand of customers for strategic training concepts for brand and product, the live communications agency is investing heavily in this innovation field and in new experts for digital experiences.
