Brand Wisdom: How Thinking Small Works for Big Services


Brand strategy…brand positioning…brand attributes…brand identity. In today’s boardrooms, these terms are more commonly overheard than understood. Yet an inside look at the Deloitte member firm network reveals that these ideas can be clarified and connected for maximum impact.

Brian Resnick will show how Deloitte and its 200,000+ professionals have combined B2B and P2P (peer-to-peer) branding principles to both come together and stand apart. He will also spotlight how, more than ever, it is important to "think small" — using a focus on your own people and highly segmented audience profiles to deliver your brand and business across the widest array of touch-points.


  • Understand why it’s important to think "small" and fine-tune highly segmented audience profiles
  • Take "brand strategy" and "brand positioning" beyond buzzwords
  • Determine how marketing and communication distinguish customer experience
  • Get the "filthy five" communication insights
  • Learn how digital dinosaurs can attract digital natives — at low-or-no cost

Together we will explore unexpected marketing and communications efforts used to shape distinct experiences in a highly commoditized industry. See how digital dinosaurs can attract digital natives in both the client and talent arenas at low-to-no cost. And learn the "filthy five" — five insights, which can only be shared with like-minded, progressive-thinking brand, marketing and communications leaders.

It will be a highly visual and energetic discussion, and audience interaction is welcomed.
