POSTPONED – DATE/TIME TBC
Differentiating yourself in today’s crowded yet uncertain market requires you to unlearn many of the ways you have been taught to grow your brand. In order to thrive you now need to work harder than ever before to create trust with your audience and to connect in a deeper way. Your product, however good, is no longer enough.
Growing a brand that matters requires you to think beyond your logo. It invites you to define a purpose that is way bigger than profit alone and to be committed to become a force for positive change. It requires you to ask bigger questions of yourself and your organisation:
If you can do this you have the opportunity to create a community, a tribe of loyal customers, who connect through shared values and an expectation that together you can affect positive change:
In this interactive workshop we will explore how you can draw from Nature’s 3.8 billion year old innovation lab to build a new operating system for your brand. Covering the themes of purpose, wellbeing, creativity and collaboration you will leave with fresh inspiration and encouragement to step out of the boardroom to lead in places where there are no maps to guide you.
