Event Details

'Branding Essentials'

Networking & Presentation event

Open networking followed by a presentation on essential branding considerations for your business including tips on how to use design to create powerful marketing literature and to build a successful brand.

Our event will begin with the usual opportunities for both open as well as structured networking. In the structured part of the event, we shall then hear from our guest speaker - Dave Bradburn of Opus Creative.


What do you need to consider in order to create a powerful visual brand? How can you ensure that you stand out from the crowd and get people to take notice? How do you communicate effectively with your target market? How can your literature influence people’s actions?

There are times when we will all need to communicate visually with our target market, clients or other audience. We’re all bombarded with logos, advertisements and other visual communication on a daily basis but by using design intelligently we can still stand out from the crowd, influence people’s perceptions and get them to read and remember our message.

In this presentation we will discuss why every business needs create and maintain a strong brand. We’ll examine the different factors that contribute towards successful visual communication. And we’ll consider the role of printed literature in a digital age.

The Colony Networking Group

The Colony Networking Group was founded in 2010 to organise events that support local businesses as well as local communities in the South Warrington area

From 2010 to 2015, The Colony Networking Group has been providing pay-as-you-go networking events that are informal, friendly and supportive to growth for businesses operating in the Liverpool-Manchester corridor. It has operated on a not-for-profit basis and offered non-membership based networking for those business owners who prefer a less formal and committed style of networking.

2015 saw the introduction of training workshops into the mix of small business events offered. The organisation has also split into two distinct sections - Colony Business and Colony Community

Colony Community launches in June 2015 and will run information events and workshops for parents. Its first event will be on family nutrition and wellbeing. Other topics on the agenda include family finances (wills and pensions), internet safety, and social media for parents.

The objective of The Colony Networking Group is to enable businesses and communities to access information and expertise from local services providers. By keeping business local and looking out for fellow business owners and community members, we can all contribute towards a thriving local business community and achieve 'Success in numbers'.
