The creative director of design and web agency iDentityCreative is one of more than a dozen figures in Cambridgeshire’s vibrant business community who will be presenting seminars at next month’s Cambridge Independent Business Expo.
The free event, at Cambridge United FC’s Cambs Glass stadium on Monday, May 15 from 10am to 3pm, will feature stands and speed networking as well as seminars throughout the day. You can now reserve a free place at any of these seminars.
Chris Gooch co-founded iDentityCreative in 2009 with the business’s current MD, Paul Morgan. Its studio is in the historic Mansion House in Chesterford Research Park, Little Chesterford.
He said: “The best brand identities and marketing strategies translate well to a variety of customer touchpoints. At the Cambridge Independent Business Expo, we’ll explain how you can make a lasting impact with your brand.
“A logo can be the lynchpin that holds a brand identity together and make it instantly recognisable – however, a strong brand isn’t built on a logo alone.
“Is your brand, message and marketing assets consistent across all digital and printed media? Is your latest service or product offering reflected in your marketing? Do you care? Does it matter?
“We’ll be talking about that, when creating a brand identity, it’s essential to consider the wider strategy and how all the finer details influence one another.”
The Business Expo is the ideal opportunity to build new connections. Stands – which comprise a table, chair and power if required – are still available. Those who take one will receive a listing in the event guide which will be distributed to all exhibitors and visitors.
