What Big Brands Know

Denver Business Series

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Denver

April 27, 2011: 5:45 PM - 8:00 PM

Gerry O'Brion has led marketing for billion dollar brands such as Coors Light, Quiznos and brands at P&G. He has translated that experience into seven core strategies that every business can use. These strategies are as powerful for startups as they are for multi-billion dollar businesses, and as powerful for B2B companies as they are for B2C. Regardless of your functional expertise, Gerry will have you look at your business with a fresh perspective. You will reexamine how you are different from your competitors, and why that matters to your customers. The fun, thought-provoking dialogue will generate real ideas you can use immediately. The presentation is packed with information, strategies and case studies about companies that are doing it right.
