Topic | (Re)Building Your Brand

Every business has a brand, but few organizations understand it’s significance and how to use it.  Fewer still are the businesses that know how to create one. The whole world of marketing can seem nebulous and abstract, but it is nonetheless vital. The good news is there are simple principles that startups or established businesses can learn and apply to craft their unique marketing presence and their brand. This will inform not only their marketing strategy, but the whole of how the business communicates what it does both internally and externally. The purpose of this workshop is to understand branding, what makes up a good brand, and ultimately how to lay the foundation for building (or rebuilding) your own brand. Come with something to write with and on, because this is going to get practical!
