As she explains, if you asked 200 people what ABET meant, you could get 200 different answers. By undertaking a massive survey and hiring outside consultants for the re-branding, they were able to craft a uniform message that is direct, easy to remember, and a call to action. Has your organization struggled to project a single idea? Have you lost potential supporters because inconsistent branding left your message muddled? Do you know? Don’t miss this episode.
