9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Today, successful business models depend more than ever on two factors: an increased awareness of using and conserving resources in conducting business, and the ever-present digital transformation. Those who know the right determining factors and take bold, proactive measures will be able to best align their organizations with their future goals.

The brand plays an essential role in this process. It is one of the most powerful tools that you have to realign your organization to perform effectively in a volatile market. Companies that systematically manage their brands reinforce four important factors for success: consistency, relevance, differentiation and engagement. Once a brand has been effectively anchored within an organization, it can contribute to quicker, more target-oriented decision-making.

In the PAGE Webinar »Mehrwert Marke« (»The Added Value of Brands«), our Managing Partners Simon Betsch and Patrick Märki explain a forward-looking approach to brand and design management. They dispense with the technical jargon, instead providing great ideas and strong views that encourage you to question the validity of conventional industry standards and think in new directions. These two experts provide in-depth insights into strategic corporate positioning, branding, design systems and communication.

In two morning sessions, you will join the two contributors in addressing the trouble spots of the brand management process in recent projects. One main focus is on the intersections between individual steps in the process: How does design convey vision and values? How is content effectively transferred to design?

The two webinars will be held on June 24-25, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
