The Purpose Advantage: Unlocking the Power of Purpose for Your Brand

Seats are limited and confirmation of attendance will be required in advance of the session.

(Full Day Workshop)

We are in a new era of brand building. As the rules of this era are being written, it’s paramount that marketers understand and align on how to differentiate their brand and drive revenue. In this crowded marketplace, meeting strong standards in the four P’s is cost of entry. Brand purpose — the 5th P – which the ANA defines as a brand’s reason to exist beyond profit, is playing an increasing role in the decision-making of modern consumers. But many brands are struggling to arrive at a brand purpose that will ignite the hearts and minds of customers and their workforce while honoring the brand’s history and reflecting its organic ethos.

In this interactive workshop, you will engage in a series of exercises and carefully selected case studies designed to teach you four key frameworks for uncovering, pressure testing or evolving your brand purpose and building a strong brief. This purpose will then be used to ideate on the creation of a proof plan that will bring your purpose to life – both and outside your organization – to improve customer loyalty, drive revenue and differentiate your brand.

Who is this workshop for?

Brand Managers, Marketers, and Communications Directors – looking to better understand how to arrive at the brand purpose and enhance or develop unifying internal strategies and external communications.

This workshop can be tailored to various levels within an organization or customized to one organization.
