Description

Your Greatest Asset is Your Story: Marketing the Family Business

Storytelling isn't just for kids anymore

92% of consumers want companies to tell their story, while only 50% are currently doing so. Family businesses have an inherent competitive advantage over other corporations with our story, reputation and values that can’t be touched.

However, communicating your story to your customers can be challenging because we often feel uncomfortable promoting ourselves.

Family Business Speakers

Steven Dubin, President of PR Works, will lead you in a discussion with Mark Parrish, CEO of Crescent Ridge Dairy, and George Rohlfing, CEO of Brookline Transportation Company, Inc., both of whom have effectively crafted their story to better market their businesses. Participants will learn how to promote their business and differentiate themselves from the competition by leveraging their unique family business traits using the newest marketing techniques.
