BRAND LEADERSHIP FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Although becoming an entrepreneur is not for everyone, every nation needs them. They are bold enough to take risks and explore new territories. Great entrepreneurs contribute to society by finding innovative solutions to its challenges. Their ideas can change the way we live, work and/or play, and improve standards of living. Ultimately, they create jobs, grow economies and create wealth.
The ABLA Brand Leadership for Entrepreneurs program is designed for entrepreneurs who already have good ideas, products and services, and have established some form of business to deliver them. What they now need is to understand how to strategically and practically transform these ideas, products and services into distinctive, competitive and profitable brands. They want to leverage the power of branding to attract customers, build recognition, differentiate and enhance the credibility of their offerings in the marketplace, make it easy to access other markets and charge a premium, and create internal pride for their staff to be associated with the organisation.
As entrepreneurs, often, the first thing investors or customers buy into is the entrepreneur. As such many entrepreneurs also want to know how to strategically leverage and/or balance the relationship between their personal and business brands.
The ABLA Brand Leadership for Entrepreneurs program is designed to inspire and empower emerging and established entrepreneurs to sharpen their capabilities to build relevant and profitable world-class brands in Africa.
