The StoryBrand Process –   Delivering the right message to    the right people at the right time   Wednesday, September 30, 2020 – 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm ET Zoom Video Conference Speaker:     Derek Sussner, Sussner Design Company For most business owners, the marketplace is shifting. For many, the change has been dramatic. A conventional response to the simple question: “What do you do?” may also need to evolve. What matters today to your customers – and to your customer’s customers – is likely different than what mattered even just months ago. If people don’t understand why they need your products or how your services will solve their problem, then you are missing out on opportunities in this shifting marketplace. In this webshop, Derek Sussner, Founder and Executive Creative Director of Sussner Design Company and StoryBrand Certified Guide, will share relevant tools and facilitate a small group exercise that will show you how to write a clear brand message. Zoom details will be sent to participants the day before the event. Derek Sussner is the Founder and Executive Creative Director of Sussner Design Company, and a StoryBrand Certified Guide. He believes business leaders deserve an ally who understands how to help their brand stand out from the crowd. As a StoryBrand Certified Guide, Derek helps clients clarify their messaging to better connect with their customers so their marketing is more effective.   CLICK HERE TO REGISTER For more information about this event, please contact info@ceonexus.com....
