Friday Webinar Series 

Global Brand Essentials

15 May - 5 June 2020

30-minutes weekly sessions every Friday, at 11:00 EDT / 17:00 CET

Global brands don’t become global brands by accident, or due to eye-catching logos alone! Let’s explore global branding best practices by examining companies who “move the needle” with global content across all of their global touchpoints. We’ll delve into topics around content silos, operationalizing your global brand and recommendations for structuring a proven content model.

Simply playing on the global stage is no longer enough to be competitive. You must seek new ways to increase brand awareness and equity. Unfortunately, there’s no proverbial “magic wand” to achieve this.

Behind every top global brand is a sophisticated digital ecosystem comprised of a combination of technology, process governance and team members performing very specific roles.

It doesn’t happen by accident.

You’ve defined your corporate values, established a brand strategy, outlined content and SEO objectives, and invested in the right technology to engage customers in each of your target markets, across all relevant channels. However, something still isn’t right... Creating consistent, impactful content is still challenging and siloed. Regional offices lack the necessary staff, global audiences do not understand the local story and sometimes agencies just make things even more complicated. You want to create valuable stories and experiences for all your audiences, but how?

Amplexor is excited to offer a series of four webinars to tackle these timely topics. From establishing scalable content frameworks, to learning from the successes (and pitfalls) of other top global brands, this series will provide valuable insight to support your global branding objectives.

Join us for just one or all four of our Friday Webinar Series – Global Branding Essentials and learn from the experts everything you need to know to enable your own global branding success story.

Why Attend?

In this series you’ll get to explore:

  • Lessons and best practices for producing and scaling global content
  • How to ensure global content is relevant, consistent and measurable
  • Operational considerations like connectivity and content workflows
  • Ideas for content frameworks and how to manage them in a global organization
  • How to balance the needs of global and local stakeholders
