My clients learn they have a “brand” – a reputation – whether they know it or not. We help them learn what they stand for in the minds of others – from colleagues to direct reports to senior staff. Then we agree on their target brand and the steps necessary to achieve it. Brands are really a collection of stories of what people say about you. We look for opportunities to create remarkable stories. Bob employs a series of branding exercises which participants find enlightening and memorable.
