D2N2: How to maximise your brand

15 June, 2017, 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Are you struggling to stand out from the crowd? Are you fed up of competing on price and seeing your profits eroded? Is your message getting lost or failing to engage customers? Or are you losing out to more established brands?

It’s never been easier than it is now to build a brand.  But without a strategic plan and a coherent message engaging your customers, your brand and marketing efforts count for little.  This informative and interactive workshop will help you define your brand.  It will also demonstrate how to use branding tools to elevate your message, engage more customers and grow your business.

This workshop aims to demystify how brands work.  In addition, it covers how they are built and useful tools, frameworks and processes you can use.   All these techniques are required in order to build a brand that adds significant value for your customers.

Who should attend?

This workshop is for SMEs, sole traders and business owners in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire who are looking to grow their business.  If you’re a business owner or entrepreneur but brand and marketing is not your forte, this is a workshop you can’t afford to miss.

This workshop is the morning session of a full day of workshops. In other words, you can attend for either the morning or the afternoon – or even both.  Attendees of both sessions are warmly invited to the lunch and networking session which runs from 12:30-1:30pm.  Find out more information on the morning session: Access to Finance for Growth.  Please note that each session needs to be booked separately.

Attendance at this workshop is free and demand is expected to be strong.  So don’t delay, register today.


This workshop is funded via the European Regional Development Fund, therefore we are required to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise (SME).

There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed prior to the event and these will be sent to you once you have registered.  One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise, the second is to capture any business support you have received over the last 3 years.  This is in order to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000.  If you have previously completed these forms at a Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.
