    Time - Registration 11.00am for a prompt 11.15am start

    Presenter - Gwyneth Box, Tantamount

    Topic - Is Your Brand Fraying At The Edges?

    Synopsis:

    A healthy business changes and develops over time, but if this isn't handled well, there is a risk of the brand identity dispersing and weakening rather than growing stronger as the company matures. Staff turnover, changes in product range and the use of contracted experts to meet evolving client needs that canât be dealt with in-house, combined with the growing tendency to outsource content production, means that brand curation is more important than ever before.

    Content:

    * About brand and corporate ID
    * How and why brands decay
    * Bought-out communications, content and expertise
    * Good intentions are not the same as skill
    * Different platforms; different formats; different audience; different content
    * Clear, consistent, coherent
    * Not all images are equal
    * How a brand appraisal can help
    * Brand guidelines, style guides and stylescapes

    About The Presenter:

    After a brief career in IT in the early 80s, Gwyneth travelled abroad, living for a while in California, followed by 25 years in Spain. There, she developed her language and writing skills through translation, consultancy, and lifestyle journalism. This led her to found the creative agency Tantamount, bringing together her technical and linguistic skills and her partnerâs design and publishing experience. Now based in the UK, the company continues to provide high quality design solutions for print and screen, balancing words and images in the service of brand and communication.

    Presenter - Phil Strachan - Strangebrew

    Topic - The Importance Of Thinking Brand Not Bland

He almost uniquely combines 14 years Client-side experience managing premium brands for blue chip multinationals with 26 years of Consultancy-side experience creating, refreshing and revitalising brands for Clients of all shapes and sizes.

    In his presentation Phil will cover how to stand out from the crowd in today's competitive markets by thinking Brand - not bland. Phil says,"I will emphasise the importance of not becoming lost and ending up drowning in a sea of sameness, and of avoiding just jumping on the proverbial 'blandwagon' and risking becoming the bland that time forgot".

    Phil will emphasise the importance of not being the same as everyone else in your category or market and of standing out from the crowd for all the right reasons - and how he can deliver what he calls London quality Branding, Identity and Design - but, being a Scotsman himself,"at Glasgow prices!"

    Presenter - Roger Porthouse - Director - Latent Capability Ltd

    Topic - Brain-Friendly Conversations That Improve Performance

    Improving Engagement and Performance are key challenges in business today. How can we have honest and meaningful performance conversations with more impact and less stress. How do we deal with the 'difficult stuff' and maintain or even increase engagement? Recent research in neuroscience has made some fascinating discoveries that have changed the way we think about how we think and react. This session will explore how we can apply that knowledge in business today to be more effective in our conversations and create better working relationships that improve individual and team performance.

    Roger Porthouse is a director of Latent Capability Ltd, a development company that enables people to be more effective as leaders, in teams and as individuals. With over 30 years leading and shaping teams in small start-ups through to blue-chip global organisations, Roger shares a wealth of knowledge and experience in team management and leadership development.

    Presenter - Will Kintish - Kintish Networking Skills

    Topic - The Power of the Question

    This month's seminar is being presented by Will Kintish. Will says'"The key to effective networking is asking the right questions in the right manner. This talk will explore the appropriate questions to ask at which point in the conversation and how to ascertain how to read the reaction of the other person to those questions."

    This presentation will help you with that difficult ice-breaker question, suggest some great personal questions to ask and not to ask! Asking the incisive business questions is the key to spotting business opportunities and then how do you follow up with those killer questions?

    Will has shown thousands in the academic, professional and financial communities how to become more effective and confident networkers. Face-to face networking is fundamental to one's success yet so many people fear this activity. Will insists that,"the old fashioned way of communicating still has to be the best for building rapport."

    Author of the best selling 'The Networkers Survival Guide', winner of the Professional Speaking Award of Excellence, whether Will runs workshops, speaks online âto the computerâ or gives keynote speeches he communicates with passion, enthusiasm and lots of humour.
