Presentation by Gwyneth Dwyer, Director of Writing Services at Larsen.

Creating a Brand Voice: Have you addressed this marketing must?
Your brand already has a voice. Is it the right voice? Is it recognizable? This hands-on workshop will present tips and techniques for creating a strong, clear brand voice that works across multiple marketing channels.

We’ll take an in-depth look at how several brands have created a voice — from ribald and rowdy to smart and sophisticated. Then, we’ll tackle these brand-voice fundamentals:

  • What, exactly, is brand voice?
  • How do you create a brand voice?
  • Can you control brand voice? Should you?
  • How do you build consensus for a brand voice?
  • 7 ways to wreck your brand voice
  • What’s grammar got to do with it?

Bring your laptop. (Or your pencil.) Bring fabulous examples to share. Bring embarrassing examples (that you didn’t write, of course) to critique. We’ll roll up our sleeves and get to work creating a winning brand voice that works for your organization.
