    Echoes of Simon Sinek and Seth Godin! Interesting how the whole idea of branding has evolved from one that was purely benefit driven (real or imagined) to one that is more personal, emotion and even quirky. All in all another good event.

    Julie's presentation was great, I especially enjoyed her concept of "twisting" as a way to innovate your business. One other comment the exhibit in the lobby area where the reception was held - that exhibit was riveting! Was it part of YONY or of the library?

      It is a library exhibit.

    She was very insightful and gave great tips to consider for branding myself as a new company as well as information I can share with clients to enhance their own branding.
