Unlike B2B or B2C peers, professional services organizations have a host of hurdles to overcome to successfully present a clear and cohesive brand story in a unique fashion. All too often, marketers find themselves stuck between building the firm brand or building practitioners’ brands.

This session, presented by Ryan Schulz and Kalev Peekna, examines how the use of an umbrella brand and supporting practice area marketing can help drive an integrated and powerful experience.

Kalev and Ryan use real examples to show how firms are using this approach to guide their content, thought leadership, events and digital strategies. The end result is a differentiated and memorable brand experience at every touchpoint.
