  • Introduction

    Brand management has come a long way since Neil McElroy of P&G's classic memo of 1931. Marketing and indeed the general landscape of the world and the way it buys and consumes is changing rapidly. With digital transformations and innovations all around us, coupled with the challenges and opportunities created by a global pandemic and the booming of brand communities led by consumers, it is becoming increasingly complex to navigate and keep pace with the changes.

    With technology at the forefront of these changes, marketers of today need to be grounded in the basics of brand building and savvy enough to take advantage of the rapidly changing landscape.
