Impact of Advertising Workshop

Impact of Advertising Workshop attendees walked away not only with powerful brand building tips from the pros, but the ability to look at their brand through a new lens. In this new world of advertising, brands must learn to enrich the lives of their customers and not interrupt, they must focus on content and not slogans and they must “always be testing”.
