Branding and Developing Brand Communications Strategies

Purpose and Overview

Branding your products and effectively communicating that brand is essential in determining success in marketing and building value for your products and organization. Creating, building, and managing great brands require exceptional insights, great creativity, in-depth analysis and ultimately, a highly focused communications strategy.

 We believe that while brands are unique, there are certain common qualities for success.  These include appealing to both emotion and reason, they inspire loyalty over time, they demand organization-wide commitment and support, and when managed well they inspire all stakeholders – customers, employees, partners, and the investment community.

In this executive training program, which is fully grounded in academic knowledge and proven research about brand development, you will learn how identify, develop and refine brand positioning and brand building strategies..

Learning from Ph.D.s in the field of communication and psychology, we draw upon theories of management, persuasion, psychology, and small group communication which are proven to work for creating success.
