An insight into brand transformation will be the spotlight topic at the upcoming UK branding and design event hosted by Williams Murray Hamm on October 13th 2010, at the Bethnal Green Town Hall in London’s East End.

This second installment in the ‘power of difference’ talks will focus on the topic of business transformation and more specifically, how to challenge the status quo and do things differently to achieve extraordinary results; the event promises to be a fantastic opportunity to hear from game-changing speakers.

Williams Murray Hamm’s first event in the ‘power of difference’ series was on the subject of challenger brands. The four speakers included Adam Morgan, the founder of ‘The Challenger Project’, consultancy eatbigfish, and author of ‘The Pirate Inside’. Tim Wright, the commercial and marketing director of King of Shaves, a brand whose first intent is to become the Number 1 Challenger brand to Procter and Gamble’s Gillette. Neil Christie, managing director of advertising agency Wieden & Kennedy, whose founding principles of stupidity and chaos have made them one of the world’s most admired creative businesses. Richard Williams, founder of Williams Murray Hamm, the leading design agency with a formidable reputation for delivering a significant ROI for entrepreneur-led brands.

On this event’s topic of transformation, Williams Murray Hamm is delighted to welcome Anthony Thomson, chairman of Metro Bank, Camila Batmanghelidjh, founder of Kids Company and Susan Meggitt, strategy and planning Director for WMH.
