Presenter - Gwyneth Box, Tantamount

Topic - Is Your Brand Fraying At The Edges?


A healthy business changes and develops over time, but if this isn't handled well, there is a risk of the brand identity dispersing and weakening rather than growing stronger as the company matures. Staff turnover, changes in product range and the use of contracted experts to meet evolving client needs that can't be dealt with in-house, combined with the growing tendency to outsource content production, means that brand curation is more important than ever before.

What members and guests say

"Having had the privilege of speaking at two of The Business Network events I only need one word to describe how they are organised, promoted and staged - BRILLIANT!"

"I have been a Business Network Member for many years, probably over 10 years now. It has a relaxed and yet structured environment in which to meet like minded business people who were keen to build long standing relationships rather than score a quick sale. I have obtained significant referrals from Network members, and have purchased services from members with great success."
