Event description


97% of Silicon Valley startups fail, and the vast majority of those are due to a failure to achieve product-market fit, or bring in enough sales.

Learn how top brands continue to defy the odds, connect to their market, drive sales, and outgrow the competition by grounding these efforts in a firm foundation of brand.

Damien Foord has been advising brands in the Silicon Valley for fifteen years and has worked with clients such as LinkedIn Adobe, Tesla, Epson, Marriott and more.

This workshop is a version of a consultation facilitated for top clientele with a price tag over five thousand dollars. By reformatting it to fit a smaller group setting, we are able to provide the same value delivered to emerging startups, while making the workshop more accessible to more people.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to define and position your brand in the marketplace

  • How to develop a strong brand identity with visual branding

  • How to craft key messages tailored to your target customer(s)

  • Tips for driving client and customer engagement to ensure long-term success

You will be given an opportunity to collaborate with others and work hands-on with our experts to build your brand.
