Often referred to as ‘the expert’s expert’, we’re delighted that David C. Baker will be joining us for a lunchtime Keynote on Thursday 18th February (1-2pm) to talk about positioning and why it’s so vitally important for businesses to get it right.
In spite of the highest percentage ever of businesses who have developed a truly differentiated positioning, the creative industry (which ironically does positioning for a living!) still has a way to go. This is particularly true of organisations outside the major city centres or under the radar, who may struggle to move upstream in client engagements, and haven’t (yet) felt any pressing need to stake one out. Let’s drop the pretence and have a completely transparent conversation about getting your sh*t together for the near and distant future.
Tickets are priced at £30+VAT for BCI members and £45+VAT for non-members.
