A little help from my friends...
OK, so those of you who keep up with my doings and undoings, know that I'll be attending the Killer Nashville mystery writers conference again this year.
(They love me. What can I say? Flipped Out is up for a Silver Falchion award, too, so if you're going, don't forget to vote, even if it isn't for me.)
Anyway, last year, I foolishly offered to do a workshop on branding. It didn't make the cut, since the workshop schedule was already full when this brilliant idea came to me.
This year, it made it onto the schedule without me even knowing about it. I got a newsletter from the conference touting my branding workshop, and that's how I found out that I was going to do one.
It'll take place on Friday, August 23rd, at 10:10, in the Vista-D conference room, if you find yourself at the Hutton that weekend. The complete schedule for the conference is HERE, if you're thinking of attending.
My question for you, as I attempt to put this workshop together, is as follows:
If you were to attend a workshop on branding, what would you like to come away with?
Are there any aspects of branding that are especially interesting to you?
What type of activities might you like to do, that would be of help to you in achieving your own branding goal?
Any aspect of branding in particular you'd like clarification on?
Is there a particular kind of handout you'd find helpful after the fact, when you were back home and trying to implement the things you'd learned?
I find the concept of branding to be absolutely fascinating, and I'm looking forward to sharing what I love about it, but I want my presentation to be useful, so if you'll help me out by guiding me in the right direction, I'd surely appreciate it.
