Addresses the increasing need for organizations to re-focus and re-align their corporate culture in order to compete in a business world that today demands trust, respect and strong values.
Corporate Brand Personality addresses the increasing need for organizations to refocus and realign their corporate culture in order to compete in a business world that demands trust, respect and strong values. Moving beyond simply how products are marketed and perceived, it shows the reader how to lead and engage people at every level within the organization to ensure consistent engagement with brand values.
Including practical models to show how corporate culture and values can be managed and improved, Corporate Brand Personality also provides real examples and case studies from the Marriott Hotel Group and Water Wellbeing Group among others that show how people's behaviours can deeply affect brand reputation through all areas of the business. Incorporating a complete strategy from start to finish, this book will help the reader build visible leadership, project an authentic brand image and reinforce their company's values.
'At John Lewis we believe our success and reputation is based on the trust our customers have in us to do the right things and do things right. That sense of trust comes almost entirely from customers' positive experience of our staff - experiences we work very hard to optimize. Lesley's book explores and articulates the under-pinning philosophy and practice of this approach in a compelling way which will, I hope, enable other leaders to unleash the power of their people to the benefit of their brand'.
Andrew Murphy, Executive Director, Retail, John Lewis Department Stores
'I have been fortunate to have worked with Lesley for over 10 years across the Financial and Technology industries. As a true leader in her field, she is engaging, enigmatic and passionate in driving real change where it counts.
Her ability to affect real cultural change in organisational brand perception and aligning this with individual's personal brand is key. In my view Lesley's success is driven by her ability to develop great personal relationships and her pragmatic approach to delivering the best results to achieve the desired outcomes.
This book is a must for anyone who wants to drive fundamental change at an organisational level or individually and I am sure will become the 'go to' guide for anyone wishing to achieve this'.

Your people are at the heart of your brand, so you need to ensure your culture is one where they believe in and represent what you want to be known for. Lesley's book will really open up your thinking to how you can achieve this in a practical and consistent way, and no longer leave your corporate brand wide open to interpretation'.
