Some of Dee’s speaking topics include –

  • Why creativity matters in marketing
    People make purchasing decisions emotionally. If you can connect with their emotions, you are more likely to influence their decision making. Creativity is the art at the heart of persuasion. 
  • How to make the most of a small marketing budget
    The great thing about the internet is a great idea will get shared even if you have a small budget. People, however, must accept that they cannot ever stop their stop promoting their business, even when resources are low.
  • Successful branding starts from the inside out
    70% of rebrands fail because people change their logo and think that will do the job. If your office junior can't articulate your brand, your customers won't be able to either. It is best practice to have a clear rationale for any rebranding exercise so that customers know what to expect going forward.
