Brand Finance Malaysia Forum 2021

26 August 2021, 09:00–10:30

Are you managing your business, your brand or both? While these words may seem to be used interchangeably, they are not the same. It is common for businesses to concentrate on one while ignoring the other, which often leads to either a loss in profitability or a dilution of the brand name.

Delegates joined us for the Brand Finance Malaysia Forum 2021, hosted as an online event, where we discussed the topic, Brand vs Business.

We will also announced the results of the Brand Finance Malaysia 100 2021 Report as part of the discussion.
