Advanced Branding & Messaging - Refine Your Food Brand 

If you joined the introductory "Your Logo Is Great..." class on how to build a brand, or you have gone through your own brand building efforts, you will enjoy this opportunity to go a layer deeper on refining your brand.  During this interactive session, you will learn how to build and refine a strong brand so that it is effectively communicated and about the importance of evolving your brand as the business grows.  Direct benefits of attending also include learning: When to act (is it time to pivot or revise our brand?); the methods involved in effective research; how to synthesize the insights that come from research to inform emotional concepts and the most effective ways to test your concepts to arrive at a new, relevant brand.
