      Brand Management Workshops

      Broad currents of marketing have influenced some ways of life, transcended a few select brands to iconic statuses, made brand names verbs, aroused a desire to possess, and incited consumers to stand in a line for hours to purchase the next version of their mobile phone or a pair of sneakers. At HCCC, we want to bring some of the forward-thinking topics in Brand Management to better understand consumer behavior and improve on the know-why and the know-how to develop strong brands. These one-hour workshops are structured so that participants do not need to have any preconditions in marketing or management. Though each topic builds upon one another to provide a complete view into brands and branding, they are stand-alone units of instruction that participants can choose to attend either module they are interested in taking.

      Topics covered in the series:
      Creating Brand Meaning (4/30)
      Finding Brand Archetype (5/1)
      Brand Perception (5/7)
      Designing Brand Identity (5/8)
      Brand Communications (5/11)
      Sensory Branding (5/15)
