Marketing delivers the message. Branding is how that message makes you feel. In today's rapidly shifting marketplace, customers are won and lost in an instant. First impressions are everything.

In this workshop, we will cover the fundamentals of branding through the lens of these breakthroughs and learn to apply them to maximize customer engagement and delight. But beware, exposure to this knowledge has been known, in rare cases, to cause a permanent shift in reality... ;)

Rogers-Lowell Chamber Membership Required

This may be the best networking bang for your networking buck! Six business representatives sit at a table and each participant at the table has two minutes to promote their products and services. Then, we rotate to two other tables and rinse and repeat, which means you get to network with at least 18 participants. That's a lot of networking! So be sure to bring plenty of business cards, brochures, product samples, and promo items to hand out. (Also, the free breakfast is actually pretty good!)
