Wired Sussex Breakfast Session: Telling Your Brand's Story

The Wired Sussex Breakfast Sessions share best practice on subjects ranging from marketing and branding to intellectual property and investment opportunities. And there’s coffee and croissants too. What’s not to like?

Are you looking to reinforce your brand values and raise awareness of your company through telling your business story?

At this Breakfast Session, we'll be discussing how you can bring your brand to life, what makes for a strong brand personality, how you can create a tone of voice that cuts through the noise and what makes for truly gripping content.

Helping to lead the session will be expert speakers from the community, who’ll share top tips, branding models and learnings from clients. The session will then be followed by a Q+A, where you can ask any specific questions you may have, as well as an informal discussion and a chance for networking.

So, whether you’re a new company looking to tell your story for the first time or you want to put a whole new lease of life into your business, this event will give you practical advice, fresh ideas and all sorts of real life inspiration.



Leading the session will be:

Al Robertson, Brand Language Consultant

Al helps companies build stronger, deeper relationships with their customers and their people by transforming their brand language. Over the years, he's helped organisations like Ronseal, the British Council, Twinings, Ford, Vodafone, MasterCard and many others find the right words to reach the right people. He’s also a Science Fiction author, with two novels out internationally and a third on the way.
