Your brand is the sum total of the experiences your customers have with your business. It communicates what you offer, how you do it,  and your values, while establishing trust. Your brand informs your marketing and business operations which is why we’re beginning the LEI Fall Series with an introduction to branding. In this workshop, we will spend two hours refining your brand values, vision and strategy with helpful exercises and then have two hours of community work time where you can put your new information into action.
