Gillian Horan examines why Branding Matters for Network Ireland Limerick event

Branding expert Gillian Horan will be the keynote speaker for a special Network Ireland Limerick event which will take place in AIB’s 106 O’Connell Street branch, Limerick on 20 February 2019 at 6pm. The AIB-sponsored event is free and open to all women in business, the professions and the arts in the Mid-West.

Gillian Horan, CEO of The Pudding, a creative and commercial Branding Company, is one of Ireland’s leading voices in the industry. During the talk, Gillian will delve into the importance of investing and re-investing in a brand, whether personal and business, to help stand out from the crowd. She will also share lots of tips on how to do this and keep a brand fresh. Speaking about the upcoming event, Ms Horan said, “If you’re a one-person show or have a small team behind you and you DON’T have a Brand Strategy you’re leaving money on the table. Brand investment will drive business results.”



She will be joined by Maxine Amodeo of Tuscany Bistro, a small firm that believes in Gillian’s mantra “Live Your Brand”. Maxine will share examples of how the Tuscany Bistro restaurant group brings their brand to life across everything they do from visuals to staff training to customer communications and more. Catriona O’Donoghue, President of Network Ireland Limerick, said “A brand is such a holistic area of business and relevant to everyone whether you’re a consultant, small business owner or large firm for lots of reasons. There will be learning for everyone at this event.”
