Brand Strategy Workshop

About the workshop

Spend the day with Slightly Mad, in what we know will be a transformative experience. With brand strategist, Paul Levine as your guide, you will explore the enduring soul of your brand. Identify its key personality traits and the anchors that are holding it back from achieving the greatness that you, as its leader, know it is capable of.

During our workshop, You will understand what the often misused term BRAND really is, what the even more misused term STRATEGY is and how both, together, can take you miles beyond a logo (which is not your brand) or a website (which is a tool and not a marketing strategy). In this workshop you will finally understand the difference between a BRAND and a COMMODITY.

It’s an exciting workshop where you will learn key brand strategies employed by some of the world’s greatest brands and how to apply the same thinking to your brand.

In this highly interactive workshop, each participant is engaged in thought provoking, hands on activities throughout.

Suspend Imagination.

Come alone, or bring your leadership team.

In this fast paced, hands on workshop - we challenge you to work with us, exploring your strategic branding issues, having productive conversations and collaborating to re-imagine your brand’s personality and vision.

Brand Exploration.


A peek at some exercises:

Brands are like People
We believe that brands are like people, we love or hate them for the same reasons we do people.  In this fun and eye-opening exercise, we will identify some of the key personality traits that make your brand stand out or not.
A goal-setting exercise that on the surface appears straightforward but when disparate objectives emerge we help you duke it out.
Eye’s Wide Open
Does everyone in your leadership team understand your current mission and vision?  Let’s have a look.
What’s My Motivation?
Think of the core values that motivate our behavior. They shape our culture and affect everything we do and create as an organization.
Brand Manifesto
It is a declaration of a brand's true intentions, guiding principles and plan to consistently deliver it to the world.  It is our reason for being. It inspires us to take action and live the brand in everything that we do.
Are you a commodity?
Philip Kotler Kellogg wrote “The art of marketing is the art of brand building. If you are not a brand, then you are a commodity. Then price is everything and the lowest cost producer is the winner.” In this exercise, we explore the difference between a brand and a commodity and where your Brand falls in that spectrum?

We're ready. Are you?
