February 13, 2012 Comments

The We First Social Branding Seminar was great fun and a huge success. We had the pleasure of spending two days in the rooftop ballroom with over 140 brands including folks from Coca-Cola, Disney, AOL/HuffPo, and TOMS.

In so doing the sponsors, attendees and We First we able to support over 40 non-profits to be there as a small way to support their incredibly important work that covers everything from cancer research to child literacy to ocean clean up.

We’ll be holding the Seminar again (date to be announced) and if you’re interested in attending, just visit now and enter you details so we can send you the information first. In the meantime, here’s a few pics from the event.

    I attended the We First Branding Seminar and came away with so much information and inspiration. The seminar was superb. It was extremely professional, organized, informative, meaningful and helped me formulate a real work plan. When it happens again, I highly recommend the seminar for both for-profits and not-for-profits. We have much work to do together to improve our world.

    Thanks so much Hans.

  • Susan Thompson

    Perhaps it could be a requirement to bring a non profit (like the “buddy” system) since less than 1/3 took advantage of your generous offer! 

  • Simon Mainwaring

    Good suggestion. Thanks Susan. It’s a good idea. simon

    The booklet isn’t sold separately as it’s part of the course. It takes you through the entire process of defining your brand and building a story around it. There’s lots more information at plus a testimonials reel about what people thought about the course. i’d love you to join us and there’s a special discount right now. Best, Simon
