Brand Building Members Only Conference @ Southern Company

This event is over.

In building our brands, we are making promises to consumers and inherently creating expectations about our products and our company. In today's environment defined by transparency and accountability, brands are more rigorously held to these expectations. Moreover, the consumer experience has expanded greatly beyond traditional touchpoints, so consistency is even more of a challenge. The best brands in the world have not only figured out how to manage their brand image in this environment, but have capitalized on it, reinforcing the core message at every step and consistently engaging and responding openly and honestly with the audience in ways that are meaningful to them. This conference brings together leading marketers who are successful in building their brands in this new environment, driving awareness, customer loyalty and the bottom line. Join us for a fun and informative day as we explore methods for creating and maintaining a relevant brand building strategy for today's consumer.

BUILDING STRONG BRANDS IN A RADICALLY TRANSPARENT WORLD
In an age of the connected consumer and radical transparency, maintaining a brand's position has become increasingly complex. Does perception drive reality or reality perception? The strongest brands owe their success to a clear alignment of their brand positioning with communications and customer experience. The foundation rests with a clear and relevant brand story. But some brands miss the mark or lose their ground. What matters most in driving demand? What measurements can be adopted to sustain a compelling brand story and customer experience? This session will discuss how brands can ensure the most successful alignment of story and experience, share research and case studies on which brands do this best and review a new diagnostic tool to help you do this.
