The global phenomenon of creating Halal products and services has grown from strength to strength – from food and drink, right through to fashion, tourism, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, finance, education, and entertainment. It is one of a wave of activities pulling businesses and entrepreneurs towards embracing global and regional cultures – and interestingly, the appetite for Halal activities and opportunities is widespread also in non-Muslim countries.

  • Do you have a business, side hustle, or personal brand that you want to scale up, to take advantage of the growing number of Muslim markets?
  • How can you do this and still cater for other consumer segments?
  • Would you like to learn more about aspects of Islam that influence business?

Join our masterclass - covering the landscape today; customer journeys, preferences, and expectations; and the components necessary for delivering a Brand-driven Marketing strategy.
