This CIM Wales branding masterclass is the fourth in the series, following our successful search, social and analytics masterclasses. Like all other masterclasses, this also features prominent practitioners, branding experts, speakers and writers together in a full-day session.

The session will touch on various topics on branding including planning and building a compelling brand, creative execution, personality and character of a brand. Whether you’re a start-up about to launch a new product or service, or an established company looking to revamp an existing one, this masterclass will provide you with the tips and know-how to plan, build and implement a compelling brand from brief to creation and implementation. We'll consider the importance of determining the personality and character of the brand and how it influences the customer experience, and look specifically into employer branding for organisations who want to articulate their employer brand, and plan an internal marketing communications campaign to influence employee perceptions, attitudes and behaviour.

The masterclass is relevant for marketing and HR professionals irrespective of the size of the company and the industry sector you work in as it provides useful hints and practical training on how to best build your and your client’s brand.
