DEC Presents: The Branding Revolution And Why You Should Rethink Your Brand Now.
Join us at the DEC on Thursday, November 21 from 12:30pm - 1:30pm in the Boardroom.
Simply put, the competitive landscape and marketing realities for business have completely changed. Competition has expanded globally while marketing has contracted to the user controlled bubble. There are little to no common narratives that tie us and everyone is shouting just to make one more sale. The noise is drowning out the signal thus branding has emerged as the only durable differentiator in this new paradigm. Everyone knows they need a ‘brand’ but what is it? We will explore what we believe to be this new paradigm and how you can stand up and stand out by rethinking your brand now. You will walk away with knowing:
• What is a ‘brand’?
• The expanded competitive landscape
• The new marketing realities
• Moving from traditional positioning to purpose with courage
• 5 ways to rethink your brand now
**All attendees will receive a free brand audit questionnaire to start rethinking their brand now
