"What's in a Name?: Rebranding MSU" 

Presented by: Checky Herrington

Checky Harrington

More About Our Topic:

When people speak your name, what comes to their minds? Chances are they think about what you look like, the kind of clothes you wear, the car you drive, or where you work. Truth is, all of us have brands that identify and differentiate us from others. It’s the same for organizations and corporations, which battle daily for loyalty and new business. To succeed, we must understand the needs and wants of our target audiences while delivering and integrating our brand strategies at every point of contact. In this presentation, get a step-by-step look at 2017 PRAM PRism Awards Best of Show winning public relations plan and campaign. Learn firsthand how Mississippi State University is employing the power of brand to move from limited recognition to an awareness that is positively influencing experiences and perceptions.
