A world-renown leader in brand management to appear at the Brand Management conference premiere
Published 5/27/2015

Prague, May 27 2015 – The first Brand Management conference that will take place on the 23rd of September 2015 at Slovanský dům in Prague is bringing Jim Stengel, a visionary and a marketing guru, who has, for a number of years, held the Global Marketing Officer position at Procter &Gamble, one of the most admired companies in the brand building area. Program will focus its discussion on the role of brands within business: Is brand the grand goal and philosophy that defines a company’s strategy or “simply” a way or a tool to fulfil specific tasks?

Why brands?

Brands are set to be building blocks of corporate strategy and marketing. As a number of analyses show, customers remain loyal to a strong brand and are not reluctant to pay a higher price for it. Why then, has brand management and development in a number of companies been limited to a focus on a graphic symbol? How should companies counter fading market value and, conversely, how should they support the brands’ role as carriers of market value? Why should they invest in brand development? Not only those questions will be addressed in the full day program.

Jim Stengel as a keynote speaker

Jim is the former Global Marketing Officer of $83B Procter & Gamble, where he oversaw an $8B advertising budget and had organizational responsibility for nearly 7,000 people. Highly regarded, his leadership was recognized in 2008 when P&G was honored as the 2008 Cannes International Advertising Festival Advertiser of the Year for the first time in company history.
