Building Your Brand: Creating Lasting Emotional Bonds With Your Consumers

Join Bill Shelton, of Left Field Creative, as he shares a highly successful approach to creating a comprehensive brand identity, position, and personality for your product or brand on Thursday, June 9, at 1:00 pm central time.

This step-by-step process will give you the tools to start re-branding and re-positioning the moment the session ends.  This highly popular approach recently helped St. Louis-based charity, Our Little Haven, develop a brand position that scored an astounding 99% approval rating with both existing and potential donors — with one supporter commenting, “If you had explained what the organization does in these terms in the past, I would have started giving you money a long time ago.”

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 , 8:36 am

Storms moved out in time for the Midlands Chapter to wrap up their program year with a tour of the Omaha Storm Chasers’ brand new Werner Park on May 24, which also happened to be T-Shirt Tuesday.

Following the tour, attendees got to watch the Storm Chasers beat the Tucson Padres while enjoying dinner on the Party Deck.  The state-of-the-art park includes a dugout suite near 3rd base, in addition to 14 more typical air conditioned suites.  It’s very family-oriented with a Fun Zone for children, in addition to a basketball court and wiffleball field.  The whiffleball field replicates the Storm Chaser’s former home at Rosenblatt Field.
