“Your brand is so much more than what you sell or what you do, it’s who you are” – Richard Branson
We live in a rapidly changing world where technology and globalisation are transforming whole industries and creativity and innovation have replaced raw materials, labour and capital as the key source of economic value.
Success in the past is no guarantee of success in the future and the strategies that got us to where we are today will not get us to where we want to go tomorrow.
