Frank Helle, CEO of Axian, Inc., will lead an interactive discussion about what it takes to properly build a company’s Brand and Marketing plans. The session will focus on what is needed to ensure that this is done properly from the beginning. Too often, CEO’s neglect this critical juncture resulting in a company with only partial potential due to the lack of a brand or identity. Practical discussion will highlight:

• Essential first steps for developing the brand and marketing
• The tough strategic decisions that need to be made
• How to know if direction is any good
• Practical suggestions for developing the execution

Your insights into what has worked and what has not will be welcome and integrated into the discussion.
