Branding is more than paid advertisements on social media or a colourful logo, but how do you identify your key message and how to use them?
The purpose of this Masterclass is to identify the foundations for a unique and effective brand story. Part of that journey is to truly understand who your customers are and exactly what you are selling to them. The Masterclass is a mix of theory and practice, the visionary standpoint and the commercial point of view, allowing attendees to remain engaged while catering to varying degrees of experience in these areas.
As a result of this Masterclass, you will be able to clearly articulate your value proposition, design a branding plan and communicate your vision.
This Masterclass is co-organised with Cleantech ForEst. We encourage Masterclass attendees to join Latitude59, e-Estonia’s flagship start-up & tech conference on May 24th and 25th (please see below for more information).
Who should attend?
The Masterclass has been designed for those who already have a concrete business idea and are interested in developing the narrative around their environmentally conscious business models, products and services.
Participants should be able to pitch their existing business idea in front of an audience.
After the two-day session, participants will be able to:
- Understand what a brand is and why it is fundamental to success
- Understand their business and use that to define a brand strategy and key messages.
- Articulate their value proposition in a way that reaches target customers
- Design the branding to differentiate from competitors
The Masterclass will be a mix of input presentations, short break-out sessions, case studies and group work sessions, in which participants are invited to carefully consider the message they would like their customers to receive.
Please register individually for this Masterclass.
Places are limited and applications will be assessed as they come in. Early application is advised.
