Positioning and Branding for Minority Businesses - Webinar SB764 – 22.5 hours The goal of this nine-session course is to aid minority entrepreneurs in strengthening their competitive advantage by leveraging proven positioning and brand development strategies, as well as increasing awareness of opportunities for inclusion in supplier diversity programs. Intensity of competition is the driving force affecting the performance of every level of management today, whether it is a small retail outlet, a service firm, or a dominant multinational corporation. A business’ survival depends on how well its product or service is positioned to satisfy important customer needs; how it differentiates itself from competitors; and how well it builds consumer loyalty, market leadership, and profitable growth. This discipline of positioning and brand development is a must for minority business owners who face the challenge of growing their businesses while remaining competitive. The nine-week class will be an interactive experience focused on teaching minority entrepreneurs how to leverage these times of uncertainty and opportunity to increase their business capacity, as well as help improve their brand identities and maximize resources. Instructor: LaNella Hooper-William, Hooper Williams Communications Course fee: FREE Tue, Apr 13, 20, 27, May 4, 11, 18, 25, Jun 1 & 8, 6-8:30pm
