Our Topic for Discussion:

Brand, Brand, Brand - We all hear about it, but how do we get the conversation out of theory and into the day-to-day practice of reaching business goals?  By actually having a conversation of course...
This session will be an informal discussion about brand, about how it relates to business goals and real-time operations. Jeff Caporizzo will spark the session with a quick preamble on brand principles and examples from the marketplace, and then dive right in and begin working with SIG participates on their own brand challenges. Attendees will an opportunity to submit questions beforehand, and Jeff will answer these in a collaborative, interactive and entertaining way with the group, underlining core brand principles and paving an actionable way forward.
Notional questions: How does brand affect my bottom line? How do I reach consensus in my organization on brand messaging? How do I collapse my complex organization into one simple story?
This will be a relaxed, roll-up-your-sleeves brand jam - Not a lecture. Jeff loves brand, he loves seeing brand work, and strives to leave his audience with effective information and tons of inspiration. Come join us - Let's discuss!
