Branding support for your business

50% of business who responded to the 2020 Playford Business Survey told us that they require assistance with developing or improving your brand.

The Stretton Centre has taken on board your feedback and partnered with Greg Kavanagh from Branded Culture to deliver two low-cost branding workshops on Wednesday, 9 September.

  • 10 - 11.30am: Why brand is everyone's business (and not just a marketing thing)
  • 1 - 2.30pm: An introduction into behavioural economics (and why consumers behave the way they do)
