By continuing business as usual, companies risk becoming irrelevant. I am on a mission to help SME leaders create resilience and unlock sustainable new growth in a landscape dominated by change.
To do this I have developed my own brand innovation program called THE BRAND RESET™, which is a fast and affordable way to re-examine, re-imagine and re-design your position in the market, because those that innovate in the midst of disruption will do better.
From the physical to intellectual.
From bricks, to paper, to concepts to feelings.
From within a companies control to outside it.
Meaning not money is the new currency.
– Marty Neumeier
The world has changed fundamentally and with that your customers’ needs and behaviours have changed. The assumptions on which you could previously predict stable growth may no longer be valid.
Learn from the insights that emerged during today’s many crises and discover why strengthening your brand is crucial in future-proofing your business.
The market is moving faster than ever, there is a huge offering and a lot of the same out there. Claiming a position with a niche product, better features, lower prices, faster delivery etc. will no longer give you a sustainable advantage as those will be met by the competition over time.
Discover how to cut through the clutter and truly outmanoeuvre your competitor.
What we know today, may not be what we need to know tomorrow. To truly thrive in a landscape dominated by change, you need to be flexible and able to come up with creative ideas fast.
Get the tools to be more innovative and create focus and alignment front to back, inward and outward. Because when everybody knows what to strive for, you can spot change early and adapt faster.
Strategy can seem mysterious. It isn't. It is easily defined. It is a set of choices about winning. It is an integrated set of choices that uniquely positions the firm in its industry so as to create sustainable advantage and superior value relative to the competition.
With the rise of digital media, you'd think it would be easier than ever to be heard. Yet most messages fail to cut through the clutter. Consumers are overwhelmed. To stand out today, you need to start with your brand.
Next-generation brands win by changing the game, not by looking or saying something different. You need to think beyond your products and services, to inspire and empower people, to help them become better versions of themselves.
The pandemic forced me to redesign my own way forward. By re-evaluating who I am, what new value I can offer, what the world needs, I have re-designed my business model and offering during the pandemic and as a result created THE BRAND RESET™.
My work experience is made up of two different careers. One in a corporate environment as a Bid Executive and one in the SMB environment as an Entrepreneur and Designer.
By re-examining what makes me unique and why people should choose me, I realised that my zig zagging career path has actually taught me a unique combination of commercial and creative skills. In stead of looking at my different career paths in silos but rather imagining what fulfilling work I could do by combining my skills I realised I am well equipped to tap into more dimensional thinking required for strategy work.
To be a good Strategist requires business skills and insight. Creating new strategies requires one to see the intangibles and connect the dots.
I tested a proofed my abilities, by working with Level C over a period of several years, where I have been trained to see problems in their full complexity, think disruptively and design strategies that create recurring growth.
In addition I invested to learn more about innovation and read everything I could on the insights that have emerged from the many crises facing businesses today. I especially focussed on what it takes to create resilience and future proof your business for the new now.
I am a Level C certified Brand Strategist and Brand Architect and as such wish to help other businesses create resilience and make an impact.
Brand architects look beneath the surface of the brand to find the points of connection within the company’s business, then use these connections to blueprint an ecosystems of value.
Where Strategists solve problems others can’t solve. Architects solve problems others can’t see.
The world has changed significantly and with that your customers’ needs and behaviours have changed. To de-risk and future-proof your business, you better start realigning your compass now.
