Brand Strategy

April 11, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am



Developing and Selling Your Brand

Effectively defining and “operationalizing” your brand among all of your organization’s stakeholders is a tall order. Knowing the unique benefits that your brand delivers and the true relevance and meaning of those benefits to your most important stakeholders is just some of the challenges you face. For start-ups on a journey of establishment, acceptance, trial generation, growth and sustainability, it represents special challenges – and opportunities. You must continually sell your brand to almost everyone you encounter. Knowing your product is one thing – communicating your brand in a meaningful, engaging and compelling way is quite another.

In this workshop, Jim Letwin will present and discuss practical ideas and approaches to defining, delivering and selling your brand.
