The Future of Brand Management



On Thursday, 24 March at 5pm, we will be discussing the changes in brand management, AI-based design and what makes brands successful in the digital age together with our client Deutsche Post DHL Group.

The Online Session already took place. To make sure you don't miss a future session, sign up for the SP Newsletter here. Interested in watching the recording? No problem, click here.

The range, speed and complexity of brand presences have changed immensely. We think that’s a good thing. The answers to these changes lie in the consistent digitalisation of brand management.

Why? Agile and efficient brand management, better results, independence from agencies and substantial savings can all be achieved by using the right tools and by appropriate (internal) communication. Over the past few years, we’ve been working with our client Deutsche Post DHL Group to devise and continually develop a sustainable solution to do just that.

We’re going to get together on Thursday, 24 March, at 5 pm to take a look at the theory and practice. This is going to be an online session lasting 60 minutes, and during it, we’re not only going to be sharing with you the challenges of the whole development process and the experiences we had with it, but also illustrating how they have actually impacted the day-to-day management of a brand with much more of a global presence than most. We’ll be focusing on the AI-based Layout Creator, which independently develops CD-compatible layouts.
We’re looking forward to welcoming as our guests Thomas Clemens, Head of DHL Brand Management and Sebastian Klein, Senior Manager Digital Brand Management.

Questions we’ll be answering in the online session:

  • How do you build up a global and efficient brand management system?
  • How do I create a framework in which branding can permanently be developed further?
  • How do I enable my partners to work intuitively and creatively with the branding anywhere in the world?
  • What’s inside the Layout Creator – a tool that can independently develop CD-compatible layouts and suggest various variants to the user?
  • How must the scope of tasks and the understanding of roles in a brand’s management change in order to successfully shape its future?

This livestream will be of interest to:

  • Anyone who takes decisions on brands and is responsible for their global management.
  • Anyone who is responsible for a brand and feels that traditional corporate design systems don’t offer any answers to the questions of our own time.
  • Anyone responsible for (online) marketing and communication who regularly produces (or has someone produce for them) CD-compatible media.
  • Anyone responsible for decisions on brands who wants to broaden their horizons and is open to new methodologies and technologies.

We look forward to your  Registration
