Workshop on brand strategy and identity for think tanks

Trainers: Naomi Isaacs, John Schwartz, Clair Syrett and Erika Pérez-Leon

Date/Time: o2 Feb 12:30 GMT

Summary: A brand strategy sets out the framework to deliver a powerful, clear and consistent message to the world. It provides purpose and direction – it guides how you act, the way you communicate and the decisions you make. It’s a vital tool in positioning your think tank for maximum impact. Your visual identity and the tone in which you communicate should build on the brand strategy and send a clear signal about who you are and what you stand for.

Soapbox has worked on brand strategies and identities for some of the world’s leading think tanks. In this workshop, they will teach you how to apply some of the lessons they have learned to your own organisation.
