How to grow your Business by Building your Brand


“If you stripped away every asset of the Coca-Cola Company, demolished its bottling plants, razed its offices to the ground and left it with nothing… Except the brand name Coca-Cola, I would be able to rebuild the company again.” These words by a former CEO eloquently capture the value of a brand. A brand is much more than the sum of the features of the product it represents.  

This introductory workshop will provide an introduction to branding, its role in marketing, how brands are valued and how brand growth is intrinsically linked to business growth. During the workshop participants will be exposed to real live examples of successful brands and their strategies.
