The AMAOC is proud to host John Mansour on Wednesday, February 7. John will be sharing his thoughts on “Using a Customer-Facing Mission to Drive Your Brand and Your Positioning”.
“We” is a forbidden two-letter word that makes everything more difficult when it comes to articulating your value story. Why? When your messaging is all about you, it requires an explanation that in many cases makes it even more difficult to understand. Conversely, a customer-facing value story is easy for everyone to understand, internalize and repeat because it’s simple and requires no explanation. Learn how organizations are using a customer-facing mission to simplify their branding and positioning to grow revenue.
