Stupid mistakes REALLY smart people make to mess up their brand – Angela Kendall Network & Learn Lunch Discussion

August 21, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Angela will be presenting “Stupid mistakes REALLY smart people make to mess up their brand.” Often representing actual rocket scientists, Angela and Spark Rocket help these and other extremely smart technologists (and the teams supporting them) to avoid critical mistakes in brand development and the brand life-cycle. This presentation will speak to the needs of companies in various stages of brand development and maintenance and hit on key points like:

What’s in a name (or a logo or an image)? Because a rose with a bad name doesn’t always smell as sweet!

Your brand, yourself? No! Your brand, your customer (aka, stop trying to sell to yourself).

One of these things is not like the other: consistency in branding is mission critical in the digital age.

Angela Kendall has spearheaded marketing campaigns with dramatic ROI for over 20 years. She has served multiple start-up and early stage companies, crafting strategic marketing & business plans enabling funding and early-stage revenue contracts over $100 million. She has carried many companies through launch and exit strategies like successful IPOs or buyouts. Angela owns Spark Rocket Marketing, a full service marketing-communications firm that carries companies through the three key stages of marketing development: Brand, Launch and Engagement. The company specializes in B2B marketing largely for technology manufacturers from industries like security, communications, pharmaceuticals, energy, chemistry and commercial construction.
