Mark Batey offers both executive training and academic teaching on all aspects of brands and branding, and the creation and management of brand meaning. His “Meaningful Brands” training is offered via modular workshops, courses and presentations.

Highly topical and with illustrative cases throughout, “Meaningful Brands” provides a thorough grounding in what Mark terms the “alchemy” of branding.

The course takes participants through the critical components of brand identity and brand image, and demonstrates how brands start off as names on products and end up as icons of meaning.

Training may be arranged in two 3-hour sessions, or run over a couple of days.

Topics include:

* the co-creation of brand meaning

* the components of brand identity and brand image

* brand story-telling

* the interplay between brands and culture

* learning from today’s iconic brands

* brand successes and failures

* brand communication
