If you have a business, you have a brand!

Brand51 throws its doors open for an Open Surgery on branding. Our ‘Branding Taster’ will start from scratch, getting you to grips with exactly what a brand is and why it is important, before moving on to key pointers on how to create and position your brand.

This workshop is completely free to attend, and will provide you with some valuable take-aways which can take your branding to the next level.

What do we cover?

Our ‘Branding Taster’ gives you plenty of practical elements to get your teeth into. We invite you to bring along examples of your own marketing collateral for our expert designers to critique and advise on.

This is a non-prescriptive workshop – we understand every brand is different, and our aim is to provide all attendees with practical pointers which they can use to enhance their branding.

Among the branding areas we will cover are:

- An overview of branding - What is a brand? And why is it important? - The difference between branding and marketing - How to create a Brand name (dos and don’ts) - Identity - Perception - Positioning - Branding and storytelling - Tips for branding success

Remember, it’s not a lecture! So you’ll be invited to take part in some interesting exercises and activities to uncover your brand. While retaining a serious business purpose, these workshops are usually a lot of fun, too.

Established brands have more chance of standing out from the competition, and our ‘Branding Taster’ can help you to embolden your branding ahead of a busy 2018.

Who should attend?

This is a workshop intended for both start-ups and SMEs who are working on their branding. The ‘Branding Taster’ is an Open Surgery, so anyone from owners to managers and executives are most welcome.

Places are limited, so we advise reserving your spot as early as possible.


Beginners to Intermediate: You might represent a start-up which wishes to learn more about branding, or be from an established business which has already begun branding activities.
