2010 Making the Most of Your Brand

Tuesday, October 12, 2010 from 4:00PM - 6:30PM

Allied Executives sponsored Forge Event: Who is in charge of managing one of your largest assets?
Is the word brand used in your company? Are loyal customers important to you, or how about trusted relationships? If trust and loyalty are important to you, then brand should be a primary focus. The reason? Your brand assets are where loyalty resides and trust is held. Brands contribute up to 78% of the market value of a consumer brand company, and averages 47% of the market value for a business-to-business company. Do the math for your own company. Brand thinking isn’t just for retail shelves. Every corporation carries a brand and it needs management attention. Who’s managing your brand assets?
