Dwayne Holland, Core Brand

Clarity and Confidence for You and Your Brand
Dwayne has been involved in brand development since 1995 working with small businesses and large organizations to help them position themselves in an overcrowded marketplace.
Over the years Dwayne has recognized a recurring theme with small businesses… a lack of confidence in their brand; who they are, what they have to offer and their position in the marketplace. Unfortunately they jump directly onto the marketing treadmill without having a strong understanding of their core identity and how that differentiates them. A strong brand is the foundation for all marketing efforts.
Dwayne’s down to earth approach not only helps people easily connect with him but it also helps him simplify the overly complicated subject of brand making it easier for businesses to implement his suggested strategies.
Services that Dwayne can assist you with:
• Discovering your Brand DNA: the core of your business and all branding efforts
• Developing your Brand Story: creating your key messages
• Brand Identity Development: the look and feel of your business
• Brand Coaching: guidance and creative input through brand implementation
• Brand Education & Training: valuable tools for you and your team
Through valuable insight, straight-forward methods and standout creativity Dwayne will help others discover, implement and live out their brand to their fullest potential.
