​​Workshop: How to Build a Strong Brand and Add Value

Two-session virtual workshop on Tuesday 13th and 20th October 9:30-11:00. Attendance at both sessions is required, plus an optional 1:1 follow-up session.

Your brand is the compelling reason why a customer buys your products or services. Understanding how to build a strong brand and how to add value to that brand will help your business remain sustainable and grow.

Why are brands important? A brand is arguably the most value asset a business has. Some brands are valued at incredible sums of money. Brands enable businesses to charge premium prices and increase market share.

Thoughtful brand strategy will give your business unique value and enable you to differentiate yourself more effectively from your competition.

The four most valuable brands in the world are worth some 6 billion dollars. Not many businesses will get close to those dizzy heights. We can however use the same brand principles to strengthen and increase the value of our own brands.

The workshop will cover:

  • Introduction to the theory, importance and practise of branding
  • Telling your business story and building relationships
  • Identifying your business values
  • Defining business purpose and personality
  • Design and application
  • Protecting a brand
  • Development of a brand over time

This is an interactive workshop aimed at businesses trading for more than 2 years. You will be given the tools, processes, time and guidance to focus on your own business. The Delivery Partner is happy to offer up to an hour’s follow-up session with any delegate who would like further guidance.
