About this event

You don’t need to be a branding expert to create strategic messages that can help distinguish the unique value your organization delivers to the community. In this workshop, our expert VEC consultants will briefly survey all the elements that work together to build a brand identity – and personality – for your nonprofit. Then delve deeper into the power of words: what you say (messaging) and how you say it (tone of voice). Whether you’re new to branding or looking to refresh what you’ve got, join us as we practice how to develop messages that are authentic and memorable.
