So most of my people and friends know that my brand word for 2018 was "elevate" and that was exactly what we did this year at the 3rd Annual Branding Over Brunch Event.
The event kicked off at 8:30 am with attendees from a range of industries and professions, getting the elevated treatment of a beautifully appointed meeting space, The Island Buffet breakfast as well as white-glove butler service of Mimosas to everyone who wanted to partake.
I opened up the event with my brand story that demonstrated the key theme of You Are Your Brand and that no matter where you are or what might be happening in your life and business, you must always pivot to the point of recognition that you must stand in your brand truth.
My key brand word for 2018 was "elevate" and that's what we did this year by moving the Branding Over Brunch Event to the Hutchinson Shores Resort and Spa. We invited five amazing speakers to present to attendees on ways to develop and elevate their brands...and that is exactly what we accomplished.
We had some amazing speakers invited to contribute to the "elevated" essence of the event. Ilene Gottlieb, the "Heart Healer" trained on Branding From The Heart to help all understand that the relationship with themselves impacts their relationship with others and their business; Stacy Graiko, Global Brand Strategist was a highlight of the event with her talk on Building High Quality Connections to Build Your Brand; Donna Cappello, Interior Designer of Cappello Creates shared insights and examples of how to Build a Branded Environment that reflects who you are and inspire creativity; John Gordon, Financial Advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors, the event's Platinum Sponsor, gave a well-received presentation on You Are Your #1 Asset - Pay Yourself First; Dawn V. Gilmore, Women's Portrait Photographer and CEO of DVG Photography presented on the fact that Branded Images are Worth Millions to a brand; Darien Hill of Smart Growth Marketing presented on how to Leverage Your Brand Story on Social Media to build engagement and sales for your business.
The event had several elevated moments including complimentary branded headshot provided by Dawn V. Gilmore of DVG Photography for every attendee, white-gloved butlers passing Mimosas. To capture the still images of the elevated experience, Faith had three top photographers to cover the event; Dawn V. Gilmore of DVG Photography, Christina Stuart of Christiana Stuart Photography and Jocelyn Ventura of Jocelyn Ventura Photography. For the moving images, Marcus Rigg of Final Film Productions captured the event as well as post event testimonials from attendees about their experience at the event. The Dance Breaks are always a big highlight at these event and this year the sound and music was provided by Sheahan Rigg of Majesty Sound.
I am so grateful to all who attended and made the event super special and of course "elevated". xoxo
