It's been a tough few months for everyone. It probably won't surprise you that a brand strategy and charitable event I was hoping to hold in July ("BrandUP - The only dedicated brand conference in the Midland UK") is going to have to be postponed.
That's the bad news. BUT - here's the good news - it is a postponement - new date is to be announced soon and we plan to run the event with all the same wonderful speakers and sponsors when it's safe to do so. Sign up here to hear news on this.
In the meantime though, my co-organiser, (Steve Whittle) and I, still want to keep 'Brand Thinking' on the agenda. Something tells us it will be relevant and important now more than ever. So, we're lining up some incredible, 1 hour - live and online - interviews with some of the most brilliant business minds in the Midlands. Just for you. For free. 🙌
Next week, on June 2nd at 3PM (BST), I'll be chatting with Julio Taylor. Who on earth is Julio Taylor? He’s only the new CEO of Hallam. Who are they? Only one of the biggest digital agencies in the Midlands, UK. Winners of Google’s Growing Business Online 2019 and The Drums Awards Agency of the year 2019. Sound like an interesting chap? 🤔 He is!
Tune in for a value-packed hour to hear how Julio defines and uses the principles of branding at Hallam, find out how they have coped in the current climate and what they've been doing to help their clients, discover how to prepare your business to thrive in the future age of purpose-driven consumers and get some ideas on how to adapt to put customers, people and purpose alongside profit and performance. It will be epic.
Also - SAVE THE DATE because I have Ade Cheatham, CEO of Cooper Parry joining me on the 30th of June. More on this soon...
See you online.
