B-TOGETHER COHORT GROUPS

Good things happen when we can be together, so we’re creating “b-together” cohort groups to help you make the most of your Brand Together experience. With a team leader to guide and facilitate, each b-together group will have scheduled times each day of the conference to meet and share work experiences and ideas, get solutions, and present their marketing materials to receive valuable feedback from the cohort. In addition, as an attendee you will become a member of an on-line invitation-only LinkedIn group that connects you with other Brand Together alumni. This valuable networking resource will enable us to Brand Together forever.
