Image and Brand Conference wraps up
|As we wrap up the 2011 Image and Brand Conference, a few things are apparent.
IT’S ALL ABOUT CHANGE.
Many companies have gone through such dramatic change with people and cost structures over the last couple of years, and now need to rethink what it means to their brands. More than half of the attendees were in the re-branding process.
Another top theme and consideration is internal branding. Companies are desperately trying to find ways of aligning and energizing the work force. Many companies have been through such change that employees need to be recalibrated on vision, mission and strategy.
Lastly, most everyone is trying to figure out what social means, and how to use it and incorporate into the brand strategy. Many of the attendees were trying blogging and tweeting for the first time this year. It will be interesting to see what progress and advancements will be made this year.
