Branding, Public Relations & Corporate Communications

Led By: Jonathan Wilson, Senior Lecturer, Course Leader, Advertising and
Marketing Communications, University Of Greewich UK

Brands and their role in society have risen in significance – to corporations, products, services and the individual. However, what still remains unclear is how to build game-changing brands time and time again - especially when the world is in a state of relative flux. Furthermore, is the art of communications really an art, or is it more about science?

The following interactive workshop is based upon the findings of four year’s work studying phenomena and collecting the views of senior academics and practitioners from across the globe. It takes its foundations in the work of Aristotle, Plato and Socrates and then maps them onto areas such as social communications, transaction exchanges, power, design, leadership and management.
Firstly, this workshop will share the most recent academic and professional discoveries. Then these along with the opportunity for you to share your own experiences and questions – are designed to help equip you with the tools and thinking needed to:• Create and maintain compelling brands and communications• Evaluate what skills and activities will best serve you in the future, as a professional
