What makes a brand successful? We will explore this question considering the brand planning process and case studies of contemporary brands from different sectors. The workshop will focus on the brand audit, brand positioning and developing brand programmes. We will review the different approaches to developing Brand guideline documents and look at how brand equity will be built. You can take these away together with a one-page brand plan template - allowing you to easily apply the principles.

Who should attend?

This workshop will be especially useful for marketers who have been asked to prepare a brand plan or brand guideline document for the first time, or are reviewing the effectiveness of their current plans.
