The Brand Marketing Programme

The Role of Brands in Creating Value - Essential Courses

The one constant in the turbulent marketing landscape has been the crucial role of brands in the creation of shareholder value. Everything an organisation does, from R & D through to after sales service, manifests itself in the value proposition made to customers and this is represented by the brand.This course provides a step-by-step process for managing brands in such a way that they create shareholder value. More importantly, it spells out a quantitative approach to the frequently misunderstood and poorly managed topic of brand equity.

The programme consists of five courses. These cover key issues like:

  • The real meaning of value
  • What brands are and their role in corporate strategy
  • The complex relationship between brands and consumers
  • The bedrock of successful brand management
  • How brands create value for customers
  • How to quantify the shareholder value that brands create
  • How to undertake an marketing health check on your organisation
  • How to focus on where value is created
  • How not to do the wrong things efficiently
  • How to understand the cost of capital
This programme will be of immense value for those in Brand Management who wish to further hone their ability and those in Sales who wish to move into Brand Management.
After completing the programme, you will be able to make a major contribution to the management of the organisation's most important asset: its brand.
