Continuing the success of bringing in real entrepreneurs who have started and run their own businesses, Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the London Business School and The Guild of Entrepreneurs are proud to bring a workshop session with a difference. Join us for over an hour packed full of spontaneous advice on how to create the story behind your brand.

Most entrepreneurs realise that it’s important to invest in brand – not least because they realise that most of the exit value of the business will be down to brand (rather than the original product innovation). But how do you figure out the brand character, how do you build a brand with no money and how deeply does the choice of brand impact every other marketing decision?

We invite Barnaby Wynter – an entrepreneur and builder of brands – to talk us through how he builds brands from scratch and where so many entrepreneurs get it wrong.

We finish by applying these principles to two very different LBS alumnus founded nascent drinks businesses – Guillauime Poncet of Juno Bamboo Water and Mike Gamell of Days Brewing.

Following the discussion with the two founders, the attendees will join breakout rooms for an opportunity to network and to work on their brand story with each other.

The event will be facilitated by Jeff Skinner, Executive Director of Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at London Business School.
