Branding and communication for social enterprises

DATE: Thursday 19th March 2015, 9.30am-11.30am

VENUE: Sussex Cricket Ground

Your brand is the way you communicate. A strong brand means more customers, more funding and more interest and support from your community.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to build that strong brand. A great logo is a great start. Get it right, and you’ll have a visual representation of your business that attracts attention, shows what you stand for and what you offer.

But your brand is much more than just your logo, or your website design. It’s also the conversations you have online. Join this workshop, and you’ll learn how to have the conversations that will develop your brand so you stand out. The session will work for you whether you have an established brand that you want do more with, or you’re just starting out.

The workshop will include:

  • Case studies and conversations about your business and your brand.

  • How to create a brand identity that gets you noticed

  • How to identify what is important about what you do, and why

  • How to target the people who could benefit most from what you have to offer

  • Why getting branding right can mean more funding, as well as more clients
