Brand and branding. Brand Accelerator. The Key Person of Influence Brand Accelerator, Barbican Centre London, October the 7th.

Brand and branding

AlignandPull were in attendance, VIP’s no less and found the day very useful, meeting with business people about real world issues, challenging and developing our own insights and knowledge. Understanding and keeping pace with the cutting edge, the zeitgeist around the rapid change on how brands are and should be to succeed.

It was amazing to listen to business’s that had applied the methodology and experienced excellent outcomes of growth, staff retention value, and recognition. The idea that a company needs to become media to move forward. That leaders needs to inspire, motivate and take their workforce with them. That a business needs to have a genuine ‘why’ pleased us as we push for our clients to do this. The need to be connected on social media, inspire, be genuine and engage opposed to just advertising. Helping clients to visualise issues and solutions around how business is not keeping pace with the changes in styles of communication and innovation in the modern world.

Brand and branding. Some great speakers on the subject, who have been through it and fought on the front line got cuts and bruises from there mistakes opposed to theorist consultants. You have to get your hands dirty and totally immerse to understand. We get lots of invitations to speaker events; this one was a yes as it has real world substance in a world of faux celebrity.

Some insightful stuff for entrepreneurs and how so few businesses make the big leap.

80% of all businesses rely heavily on the time and energy of the founder who leads to burnout and frustration. Learn how to turn your skills into high-value products and remove yourself from delivery.

Brand and branding. In this brave new online world competition is super fierce, and profit is not easy to come by and if you do not easy to sustain. It’s about how to differentiate yourself in a crowded market and create high demand for your business, products and services without having to hunt and chase every sale. You can focus on the real clients that value what you do, deliver and produce.

Influence = Engagement X Reach exponentially. It’s crucial to becoming a highly valued, highly paid ‘Key Person of Influence’ in your industry and building a business you love, and one you are you’re proud of.
