      BRAND OR BLAND? Effective marketing begins with an engaging brand

      Without a strong brand, marketing is just a shot in the dark. Your brand should form the basis of all your storytelling. If you don't have this right, your messaging has no real sense of purpose or power. During this session we will explore the truth of what a brand is, why branding is so important, and how you can improve your current brand position, to ultimately improve your business.

      Brands, Browsers & Brexit

      The B2B Expo takes place on 27th and 28th March 2019. On 29th March we will probably be Brexiting. What impact might this have on how we communicate our brands in print and digitally? With more channels and ways to reach audiences than ever before, along with the uncertainty of what is to come, how can we keep control and consistency over image and message? Should we ‘leave’ what we are currently doing behind us, or should we ‘remain’ on our current path? Join us for a discussion and maybe even participate in a mini-referendum or two.
