Growing Brand Value

Professor Leslie de Chernatony (Honorary Professor of Brand Marketing, University of Birmingham, UK)

Lecture Hall 2, J.E. Cairnes School of Busines & Economics, NUI Galway 15:00 :: 28th May 2009

Professor de Chernatony’s presentation will be concerned with the increasing importance of brands having to offer more value to stakeholders. It will start by showing how the environment is one that demands a different type of value. It will then address the problem of defining value and will consider frameworks that help stimulate ideas for new ways of growing a brand's value. Professor de Chernatony will discuss the way that a new breed of brands (market driving brands) is driving more value by thinking unconventionally.

At the end of his presentation, Professor de Chernatony will host a Questions and Answers session relating to the topic of brand value. He would also welcome broader questions regarding the research process. This Q&A will provide an opportunity for PhD students in particular to ask any questions regarding their own research and research output.
