LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --
The Un-Conference: 360° of Brand Strategy for a Changing World Featuring John Sculley
May 16-17, 2013
The Andaz Hotel, San Diego, California
Dedicated solely to the art and science of brand strategy and management, this workshop will be unlike anything else marketers have ever experienced!
For two full days in May 2013, a small, exclusive group of marketers will gather together with top marketers and John Sculley and create a one-of-a-kind learning and networking experience dedicated to all aspects of building successful brands for the 21st century.
Intensive and exciting, this workshop will equip participants with the insight, tools and techniques required to release the full potential of their brands in a new era where consumers now drive and own the conversation about brands.
Why is this conference unique? This is literally the un-conference.
- There are no attendees – only participants. Each will work in a team of ten, competing with and against other participants through fun and energizing learning-exercises.
- Exclusivity. Only 100 participants, 10 teams of 10, 10 tables, one room. Our focus is on deep learning and value for the participants – not how many people can be squeezed into a room.
- The walls are down. The experts and participants are working together, removing the distance typical of conferences.
- Real world impact. As in the unforgiving marketplace – some will win, some will lose. All will learn.
- Not your usual talking heads. John Sculley of Apple and Pepsi success will join the seasoned marketing experts of The Blake Project, a leading brand consultancy.
