Brand Finance Asia Pacific Forum 2017: Brand Governance - Building the Brand Inside Out

11 December 2017, 08:30–12:00 UK Time

One of the greatest challenges of managing a business effectively requires proper brand management. Brand Governance involves helping a brand to create or improve internal brand management tools like policies and procedures, guidelines, audit and compliance processes, brand risk measurement and KPIs. It involves driving the internal culture where internal values and behaviours are reflected externally through a positive brand experience.

Gain first-hand insights from world leading brand practitioners and cutting-edge thinkers who will share their best practices, knowledge and expertise about managing brands.

Through interactive discussion panels, thought provoking ideas and objective debates, Brand Finance Asia Pacific Forum 2017 will help you to be successful brand ambassadors who will be instilled with a strong sense of pride and loyalty in the brand. Ask questions and hear from the panellists as they share and discuss the trends and influences affecting brands today. Expand your network with international colleagues and gain first hand insights from the world’s leading brands.
