ESPRESSO SHOTS OF BUSINESS WISDOM
Just like an espresso shot will kickstart your morning, John Moore, a former long-time Starbucks marketer, will kickstart your business thinking. He will begin by upending how you view “branding” because, as he explains, the greatest brands never begin with the intention of being a great brand. Additionally you’ll gain a new appreciation into the importance of astonishing employees to astonish customers. And, you’ll learn the three endearing brand storytelling pathways a business can use to find enduring success. John’s timeless and actionable business advice shared in this presentation will help reinvigorate businesses to survive and grow in any economic climate.
