Our conversation with Jan Gooding will look at the value to an organisation of developing an inclusive brand and the opportunity cost of not doing so. Is it important? Does it deliver brand value? Ultimately, does it deliver to the bottom line? Walking through her career to date, Jan will explore the role of brand purpose and it's relationship with organisation.
Jan’s blue-chip corporate pedigree includes spells with BT, British Gas, Diageo and Unilever and, most recently, as Group Brand Director at Aviva.
