How to build a brand and sell with purpose

May 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

£27.50 – £77.50

Successful organisations know how to tell their story. They understand what their audience needs and they understand how to communicate that with a minimum of fuss. They understand that people don’t buy what they do, they buy why they do it. Their purpose.

This small, intimate and interactive workshop will teach you the principles behind successful brands and give you practical tips to shape your own story without spending a fortune. With a mix of individual, paired and group work you’ll get hands on with your brand, to help you define your brands proposition through your core purpose.

Join Dan Willis to understand how you can create an organisation that people fall in love with. Grab the chance to ask questions, network with other organisations and see for yourself how you can…

  • Improve your creative communications

  • Get more customers and make more sales

  • Attract the best talent to your team

  • Pitch to prospects concisely and with confidence

We usually sell out in advance, so book soon to secure your place!

Why attend?

Whether you’re planning something new, just starting out or looking to refresh an existing brand, we have the formula and plenty of ideas that will help. Your customers want to know the story behind your organisation, what makes it stand out and why they should care. It’s why so many of the best new businesses are putting brand at the heart of everything they do.

In this workshop you’ll learn…

  • How to answer the questions via tips, exercises and examples

  • How to articulate your Value Proposition clearly and succinctly

  • How to test and validate your ideas about your brand

  • How to differentiate your brand and stand out from the competition in the real world

We’re here to help create better business…

Over the past decade we’ve worked with businesses, charities and other organisations of all shapes and sizes to develop the structured process we’ll share in this workshop. The ideas we use are tried and tested and have been chosen because they help organisations thrive. Without a great brand story a depressing number of ventures fail before they ever really get going. By asking the right questions we want to stimulate your thinking and make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
