Brand Leaders Circle

The Center has launched its exclusive Brand Leaders Circle to bring together top executives from a wide range of industries to discuss best practices and uncover new insights into what it takes to build great brands.

The Circle will meet on an exclusive basis bi-annually to provide:

  • A member network with executives from leading companies to share best practices in building and maintaining strong brands.
  • Access to that latest research and thought leadership from the Center on Brand Leadership, Columbia Business School faculty, and innovators, entrepreneurs, and consultancies on brand strategy and marketing.
  • The opportunity to discuss market trend challenges, share best practices, and gain insights on branding and marketing--in a non-competitive environment--from fellow Forum members who work within a range of industry categories.

We would like to thank our Circle members and companies for their gracious support.
