    HECA Pre-Conference Session
    June 16, 2014
    2 p.m. - 5 p.m.

    Presented by: Kristina Dooley, CEP, Independent Educational Consultant, Estrela Consulting 

    Ever wonder how top companies create such consistent, creative, coherent brand messages, AND manage to elicit a sense of loyalty from their consumers? What, exactly, keeps us going back for $4 cups of coffee? This workshop will focus on key elements defining top brands and how we can translate those into our consulting practices.  We'll provide a detailed look into how our visual, verbal and written identities help shape our brands, and discuss how our "action" identity can affect our businesses. We'll also focus on how to successfully use social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as branding tools...without becoming overwhelmed! Attendees will discover the value of customer service and, using examples from top companies, how it is impacting our businesses. Participants should be prepared to share ideas in this interactive session and will leave with a laundry list of ways to make brand management less daunting...and maybe even fun! Limited to 35 participants.
