You’ve got a smart logo and a business name. But is that branding done?
Hayley Baddiley, guest speaker at our Connect Derby business evening on Thursday 13th October, will talk about how your logo is just the tip of the branding iceberg.
Managed effectively, branding shapes everything your customers experience and makes your company stand out from the competition. Its principles are as relevant to a small businesses as they are to multinationals.
With over 20 years' experience, Hayley is global marketing director at Denby Pottery responsible for revitalising the iconic Derbyshire company’s 200 year-old brand for the modern consumer.
She will talk about what branding is, how it’s managed, and how to define your own brand and understand whether it may need re-inventing. Some of the topics she will cover are:
- What's in a brand and why is it important
- How consumers are changing the way they interact with you
- The modern media landscape
- Examples of iconic brands who have reinvented themselves to meet changing consumer needs
- How Denby Pottery is evolving to meet the needs of a new audience
- The importance of 'story-doing' as well as 'story-telling'
- How to define your own brand
