WIPA Presents: Kristin Banta, Building a Brand

WIPA Program

This past August, WIPA presented Building a Brand by Kristin Banta at the beautiful Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, CA. Developing and nurturing your brand identity is critical to defining yourself within the market place.  Kristin showed us how to define our own brand identity and how to begin getting that message to the right clients.  With her boundless energy, and charming personality, she talked about how to separate ourselves from our peers.

Our event began with cocktails and meeting on the stunning back patio.  Perfect weather, perfect ambiance!

Kristin Banta’s presentation was in the on-site auditorium … a much appreciated space at the venue, and of course it was video taped by our videographer, Michael Loeb Photogrpahy, and is up on the WIPA website in the members section.

Following the presentation, we were treated to a delightful lunch.  Then a coffee bar, wedding cake and desserts topped off another home-run event for WIPA!
