Glenn C. Van Deusen, 
President & Founder of Van Deusen & Levitt Associates, Inc., will speak to Westport Sunrise Rotary at the 7:30AM breakfast meeting this Friday September 13, 2019


Glenn C. Van Deusen is the President and Founder of a global branding firm, a proven branding expert, and a trusted advisor to leaders of businesses and organizations around the world. His insights and ability to reveal and leverage powerful brand equities has transformed organizations across numerous business sectors. The strategic guidance and brand counsel he provides is driven by more than 35 years of leadership experience at powerhouse companies like Procter & Gamble, Bausch + Lomb, and Saatchi & Saatchi. He is also an avid entrepreneur who has founded and led businesses to success. Glenn has an exceptional ability to expose the rational and emotional motivators of consumer and employee behavior that organizations already possess and use them to turn their brands into stronger business-builders. As a result, his clients have saved millions of dollars and reported business gains of 100%, 200%, and more.
 
Glenn relates easily to a wide range of audiences, having "walked in their shoes." Throughout his career, he has been a manager, business leader, president, trustee, Board member, entrepreneur, advisor, and executive coach. From his first job at what many believe is the top of the branding world - Procter & Gamble, Glenn has continued to learn and apply the best practices from the best brands in the world. One of his most valuable lessons learned is that every organization must deliver on certain rationale benefits, but it's the combination of rational and emotional advantages where the real magic happens and the greatest business success occurs. Glenn's experience with brands in 20 different countries has also proven that every organization already has an emotional brand advantage just waiting to be unleashed.
 
Having worked for giant companies as well as start-ups, Glenn's passion is sharing how every organization, regardless of size, can apply best-in-class branding and marketing methods to their business and realize their own exponential growth. As a featured presenter, Glenn shares his proven, trademarked process for creating business-building brands and provides practical solutions that can be applied to businesses across a wide range of industries, both for-profit and not-for-profit. His message has been featured at credit union conferences and in BrandWeek, Credit Union Magazine, Financial Brand, CU Broadcast, and Money Summit. When he's not busy sharing industry-shaping branding insights, Glenn contributes his energy to philanthropic and civic organizations.

Session Description :
Too many organizations are wasting money every day on advertising, marketing, social media, and even employee training because they don't know what makes them special. Why should a potential new customer trust you? What makes you so special? For many organizations, this question has no compelling answer...yet.

In this powerful talk, world-class brand strategist Glenn C. Van Deusen reveals how a strong brand compels your target audience to make you their first choice. His message has the power to awaken your full brand potential and multiply the impact of all your marketing spending, regardless of the size of your organization. You will learn how to apply the skills of some of the best brands in the world to leverage strengths your organization already possesses and create a brand story that rationally and emotionally connects with your audience.
 
A credit union case study will be presented to show a real-world example of how an organization that was already doing well became even more successful. After finding and quantifying what truly made them special, this credit union redirected their strategic plan, re-wrote their approach to marketing, initiated new employee training, and achieved record results. The talk will also cover how your organization can answer the four most essential branding questions - Who are we? What do we stand for? What makes us unique? Why are we a better choice?

Nick's Notes:

Traveling...

Dear Readers,
Still in England. I had considered going to Barcelona or Amsterdam but decided against it. Not only am I just too lazy but also the east coast of England at this time of year is hauntingly beautiful. I have never regretted coming to America but it does take me a few days to ease the effect of having a hole in my soul, 
besides warm beer and steak and kidney pie. Not to mention apple pie and custard. 
See you all next week

Westport Sunrise Rotary Club Board Meetings
Usually the first Tuesday of the month 5:30-7PM in Town Hall Room 201.  All are welcome.  
Rotary's commitment to Service Above Self has been channeled through the Avenues of Service,  which form the foundation of club activity. Club Service (Fun,  Fellowship and Fundraising)  Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs.

Vocational Service (Four-WayTest)
Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process.

Community  Service  (Charitable Giving and Hands-On)  Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

International Service (International Projects and PolioEradication)
International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to Polio Plus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.

New Generations Service ( Rising Young Voices)
New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as RYLA Rotaract and Interact club service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.
