Rebranding during global challenges

This event is organized by the WU Department of Strategy and Innovation

Modern times require resilience and change. To remain competitive, companies must adapt constantly. Brands that are not committed to social responsibility and sustainability will be boycotted. How do you “think into the future” when it comes to brand development? Should companies take a stand on current issues? How do you balance global versus local perspectives to meet all interests? And how can tradition be reconciled with modern values? Experts will provide insights into brand development strategies that involve thinking outside the box.
