Reframing Brand Strength

We’re always talking about the importance of brand strength and how it’s critical to the success of any organization.

Spencer Brenneman Ring Leader Douglas Spencer shares some personal reflections on the world’s strongest brand, Apple.

This Newsletter is the Last One

Of its kind, that is. (Psych!) For almost six years we have been helping organizations like yours reframe their focus and remaster their messages. Well, what’s good for the goose, as they say. When we return in September, you will find a new focus and a new message for Spencer Brenneman! We hope you’ll approve.

In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the summer, stay safe, and stay positive!

Survey Says...

Whether it’s with the original, iconic Richard Dawson or today’s host, Steve Harvey, we’re a big fan of the surveys of The Family Feud. So we have a quick, eight-question survey for you.

Are you game? (Get it, game? Game show? Ha!)
