The importance of establishing a company’s brand to ensure long-term growth and competitive advantage cannot be overstated. A creative strategy based on an understanding and appreciation of the character of the target country, region, and culture is necessary in order to improve the favorable and reliable impression a company gives to its customers, significantly advance its global business, and enhance the value of its brand in the cross cultural marketplace. Our distinguished group of speakers will provide insight into successful cross-cultural branding by studying Hartford Life International’s brand strategy.  They will focus especially on the highly competitive Japanese market, where the U.S.-based insurance giant has achieved outstanding business results.
