Brand Led Innovation Masterclass

Brand Building from the Inside out

 At the start of any business venture there is the talent and resources of the people involved. Which industry they decide to invest their efforts into is up to them. But once they have decided what to do, the brand determines what they do next and after that.

 With the failure rate of new products and start up businesses at the 80% level - the role of Branding to differentiate your business and gain traction in the market place has become of paramount importance. The Brand Strategy Masterclass introduces delegates to the new management thinking required to develop and grow brands in today’s challenging economic environment.

 Many marketers are still trapped in an industrial age mindset - where marketing is a bolt on or disconnected from the business as a whole. A lot of the marketing theory that was developed in the last century is no longer applicable in today's volatile and turbulent business environment. In this Brand Masterclass will help start-ups and SME's understand the tools and strategies that are used by the world's biggest brands. It will also help them successfully apply this thinking to their own businesses to create value and new white space innovation opportunities.

Workshop Programme:

  • Market forces and trends that are challenging existing marketing thinking
  • What is a brand why should companies invest in them? [Real world examples]
