Rebranding | Lessons From the Field

Rebranding an organization is a major undertaking that can have you scratching your head as to where to start.  In this conversation, Emma Gilchrist of The Narwhal and Kristi Chester Vance, a TREC associate with a background in marketing, talk through the Narwhal’s recent rebrand, exploring what caused them to rebrand, where they started, how to create an inclusive process and how to measure success. They also share some basic nuts and bolts on the naming process and a checklist for all that goes into rebranding.
