Building and Sustaining Strong B2B Brands
In this one day "Brand Management" training course you will learn the key skills needed to define and build a strong B2B brand that delivers compelling points of differentiation, creates competitive advantage, and gives your business the edge needed to thrive in our fast-changing world.
77% of B2B Marketing leaders say that branding is critical to growth (Circle Research, B2B Marketing Leaders Report). Business-to-business purchasing decision makers view your brand as a central element of the value proposition, placing as much importance on what it means to them as they do on your salespeople’s efforts to win the deal
