Train Ahead. Choose CMKG with Confidence.

The CMKG Difference

Not all training is created and delivered equally. At CMKG, we are the content creators, facilitators, and the support system for our students as they complete their training programs. We have worked with retailers, suppliers, 3rd party solution providers, distributors, b2b, sales organizations, and even online retailers.

What types of training do you offer?

We offer a blended learning approach to Retail, CPG, Sales, Category Management and Shopper Insights teams and individuals through:

  • Free Assessments
  • Instructor-Led Virtual Training (Teams)
  • Instructor-Led Classroom Training (Teams)
  • On-Demand eLearning (Individuals)
  • Subscription Learning (Individuals)

We believe that eLearning alone does not benefit teams and organization. The opportunity is to create a blended learning solution that combines eLearning as pre-work + virtual training + classroom training. 

We can customize training and consult with organizations to identify training opportunities that will move them toward their strategic priorities. We are 100% focused and dedicated to creating and delivering the best possible training to teams and individuals.

What do I get with CMKG training?

First and foremost, you get the CMKG experience and dedication to our learners. We are caring thought leaders who want to help you achieve your learning goals.

You also get access to best-in-class training options that are customized to meet your team's specific needs.

How is CMKG’s training different?

  • We have 20+ years of training experience creating and delivering training to major retail and CPG companies — online, virtually, and in-person. It's all we do!
  • Our training was developed in-house by content experts. We have the knowledge in "our house" and the experience to customize it to many different business scenarios based on the uniqueness of each of our clients. We can also tap into our broad network of experts to ensure we create the best training available in the industry.
  • We focus training on strategy and on-the-job skill building with a blended learning approach. Online training alone isn't usually enough. Learners need to understand how to strategically apply learnings in their specific business. That's where our custom, instructor-led training and coaching come into play.

What support is provided to individual learners?

We have accredited practitioners accessible 8 hours per day via online chat, email, and phone. This is one of the most highly rated components of our training approach - we are available, knowledgeable and able to help solve problems and answer questions!
OUR MISSION:  To support our individual learners by addressing any technical or content-related questions, ultimately fostering a great learning environment that helps them build their skills and make progress in their learning journey.


How do individuals and teams access training?

For instructor-led virtual training, we use Zoom or Microsoft Teams or other online meeting tools. 

For eLearning, users log in to our site using a unique id and password set up for them. Online training can be completed via desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.


Passion, expertise, and leadership

Training for all

Our clients and students represent both Retailers and Manufacturers, including a variety of business units and roles such as category managers, sales, shopper insights, marketing, key account managers, training and development, space management teams learning & training, and human resources. We understand that different roles need different levels of training and work with you to develop the best solution for your circumstances.

Embracing Your Uniqueness

The options to succeed in meeting your goals takes more than an off-the-shelf solution to developing your most important asset — PEOPLE. People are the key to innovation, strategy, and forward momentum. eLearning alone can provide direction, but needs to be supplemented with instructor-led sessions that incorporate your strategies, data and approaches for relevant workshops and on-the-job assignments.


We’re here to help you meet your goals, not fit you into what we have to offer.
