    How to Build Your Brand and Grow Your Business

    Firms with a strong, trusted brand are more profitable than their competitors. They often get selected without even having to compete. They not only are more effective at getting great clients, they also have an easier time attracting talented employees.

    In this content-packed session with our own Howard J. Wolff of Full-Height Advice, Inc., you will learn:

    • How to conduct an audit to determine if you need to refresh your brand
    • How to rebuild and reinvigorate your brand from the inside out
    • How to grow your business using three tried-and-true strategies

    Because implementing these strategies requires principal-level commitment, any marketer who brings a principal/owner will be able to register the principal/owner at the SMPS member price.  If you are a principal and have no full-time marketing person in your firm, you can attend this lunch program at the discounted SMPS member price. **

        Howard J. Wolff, founder and most senior person at Full-Height Advice, Inc., has helped numerous architects, designers and contractors build their brand and expand their business. He is the recipient of the highest honor bestowed by SMPS: The Weld Coxe Marketing Achievement Award. A published author and sought-after speaker, Howard helped build WATG into the number one hospitality design firm in the world and increased their business tenfold.
