    While branding is at its heart a “creative process,” for many professionals it often sounds too soft and nebulous to have any tangible value. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Renowned B2B marketing strategist, agency principal, author, and speaker Josh Miles developed Bold Brand 2.0 as a way of sharing and teaching a framework to help firms identify a niche, position themselves within that niche, and build a compelling brand. This framework guides professionals step-by-step through the process, illuminating potential pitfalls along the way.

    In this engaging workshop, Josh will unpack:

    - Keys to positioning your brand in a sea of sameness 

    - The non-attorney’s guide to trademark and copyright basics 

    - Secrets to designing a better website experience 

    - How to perform a Brand Audit 

    - And how to create a Bold Brand Blueprint as a roadmap for marketing your firm

    In addition, Josh will guide workshop guests through potential application of these concepts within their own firms, with plenty of interactive discussion and real-time feedback.


    Tickets include refreshments. End the day by heading over to Catalyst Loft at One Convention Place for a SMPS-hosted Happy Hour with Josh Miles. Simply add this FREE event to your registration for headcount purposes. Drinks and light appetizers are included.
