The importance of establishing and protecting your brand in the digital era cannot be overestimated.Every brand is vulnerable, but no business is too big to fail or too small to succeed. Your company brand and the brand promise are of paramount importance.

Building and managing a strong brand will strengthen and manage the perceptions of your business… but the brand must be protected from the outset.

In response to demand from our start-ups – as well as some more established SMEs – Innovation Birmingham is holding this event with market leaders Marks & Clerk to provide an insight into what to consider when selecting and protecting your brand.
