It generates trade and involves analysing, planning, managing and controlling activities concerned with creating and maintaining high levels of customer service and satisfaction.

Written by a combination of marketing academics and marketing scientists who engage with industry it presents information that is practical and interesting in a style that is theoretical and accessible.
