Identity – A Tool for Success. A talk about Branding and Strategy

Success is a mystery, but many success stories share a common thread: focus, and determination.

Luckily, for businesses and personal brands, we can find a focus, and design character and strategies to never lose it.

We will dive into the elements for creating a robust identity. From an idea, we will explain the process of evaluating the possibilities, defining your target, and setting up a focus for your goals. Attendees will walk away with tools and guidelines for creating and managing their brand and marketing strategy to reach your wildest dreams.
