D2N2 Growth Hub: Maximise your brand

15 January, 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

This informative and interactive workshop will help you define your brand.  Moreover, it will show you how to use the tools of branding in to elevate your message, engage more customers and grow your business.  It’s never been easier than it is now to build a brand.  But without a strategic plan, and without a coherent message that engages and resonates with your customers, your brand and marketing efforts will count for little.

Who is it for?

If you’re trying to build your brand but you don’t know where to start, or looking to step up your existing branding, this workshop is ideal for you.  This workshop is open to small and medium-sized businesses based in either Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire.

What’s on offer?

During this workshop, we will cover the following topics:

  • What are Brands?
  • How Brands add value
  • Brand positioning
  • Customer analysis
  • Defining your purpose
  • Brand alignment
  • Branding toolkit

Further information and registration

While this is a FREE event, we only have a limited number of spaces available.  So don’t delay, book your place today.  The D2N2 Growth Hub is delivering this workshop in partnership with South Derbyshire District Council.  Furthermore, the European Regional Development Fund  is part-funding this event.

As the European Regional Development Fund part-funds this event, we need to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise (SME). There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed either before the event or on the day. We will send these to you once you have registered.  One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise.  The second is to capture any support you have received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000.  If you have previously completed these forms at a D2N2 Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.
