A Brand New You: Effectively Communicating Your Brand

Led by Jason Dixon, Executive Vice President at Neuberger & Company

We spend a lot of time, money and energy building brand. After all the approachable market research, identifying the target client, design, content and deployment software is done, you can’t just sit back and hope that the world will get it. The problem is that not everyone communicates the way you do. What sounds good to you, sounds threatening or combative to the next person. We have to become students of people to effectively communicate our brand. Whether we’re using social media or in a conversation in an elevator, style matters. We’ll discuss some of the science behind effective communication and how to use those tools to move your business, project or simply a personal relationship forward.

It will focus on the audience, the emotion, the strategy and the business drivers all necessary to uncover this strategy. Those pieces ensure we put the consumer’s experience front and center.
