Miltton is embarking on a partnership with the world’s leading communications school, Berghs School of Communication. The partnership aims to bring the world’s best marketing and communications training to Finland, inspire and encourage Finnish professionals and raise  expertise in the field to international standards.

Berghs and Miltton begin their cooperation with Branding Bazaar, scheduled for 2015.  The four-day event will feature stimulating lectures on relevant marketing communications themes such as digitalization, marketing and PR, brand building and the customer journey.

“Berghs is an inspiring school with a high level of quality and an excellent international reputation. Their progressive teaching methods demonstrate ambition, foresight and curiosity, and their students and graduates include the industry’s leading talents. At Miltton we constantly strive to enhance our knowledge and competence as well as that of the entire field. For these reasons, our partnership feels very natural,” says Fredrik Heinonen, Partner and Deputy Managing Director at the Miltton Group.

“We have excellent potential to develop and find new methods to enhance the competence of the industry with a dedicated and forward-looking partner like Miltton. The goal of our partnership is to create new forms of training to help respond to the challenges we encounter in the different fields of marketing communications,” says Camilla Wallander, CEO of Berghs School of Communication.
