#48: Developing Your Corporate Identity with Hope Timberlake

by | Apr 1, 2021 | Podcast

Today’s Guest

Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.

The first thing anyone hears about your company is the brand name and your messaging.

Developing a corporate brand identity, training your team to understand and internalize it, and creating multiple versions based on who you are talking to is crucial to your success.

(Remember we’ve spoken about personal branding before with Stacey Ross Cohen from episode #39, so if you haven’t heard it yet, go do it now!)

In today’s episode, we’ll be talking about how to handle these things with Hope Timberlake, the founder of Forte Consulting, which helps executives hone their team alignment, branding, presentation, and other various leadership skills.

Let’s give a warm welcome to Hope!
