After 5 years of appearances as a Globe and Mail business bestseller, the fully updated and revised edition of this book could not be more timely. The first edition was a plea to North American leaders to confront three crises -- hyper-messaging, the labor shortage and the rise of China -- by embracing the fact that a Brand is not a logo, advertising or any other marketing communication, but what people think of you.

Unfortunately, these crises have only become more serious, and the majority of North American executives still fundamentally misunderstand Brand's true meaning. Yet there is good news: once you realize that your Brand is what people think of you, you realize it is your culture. Then you can build a "remark-able" Brand that cuts through competing messaging, helps you attract, retain and inspire the best and brightest, and leverage the full power of Branding -- our single remaining advantage over the East Asian economies.

This new edition is packed with 37 entertaining and practical new stories, along with numerous actionable frameworks, on how to build a Brand for the 21st century -- starting by rooting it in an inspiring core purpose and Brand Foundation. You can put this book to work at your organization -- whether B2B, not-for-profit, B2C or government -- today.

About the Author

Ted Matthews may have persuaded adidas to bring back The Three Stripes and convinced Energizer not to kill the bunny, but as Canada's original and foremost Brand
coach, he continually pushes his clients to understand that a Brand is not a logo, website or advertising. Instead, a Brand is what people think of youTM.

As an entrepreneur, Ted built Promanad Communications into an 80-person firm that, over a span of 30 years, served an extensive list of blue chip clients. When it became clear that most professionals operate as if a Brand really is just a logo, he sold Promanad and founded Instinct Brand Coaches. Drawing on his own experience as a CEO, Ted teaches his clients to embed, throughout the organizational culture, instinctive behaviors that help their Brands earn a spot in the minds and hearts of increasingly discerning stakeholders.

Ted's dogged execution of the Instinct mission -- to challenge and support leaders to maximize the potential within their Brands -- has spurred some of the most successful Brand evolutions in North America. He has been an integral force behind the Brand- building efforts of organizations such as adidas, Manulife, Oxford Properties, Morneau Shepell, Strata Health, AtlasCare, Quadrangle, Revera, Advocis, IAMGOLD, Kinross Gold, PICKSEED, Investment Planning Counsel, Steam Whistle Breweries, ornge and Street Kids International.

For his pearls of wisdom and famously entertaining style, Ted is a sought-after speaker for business schools, corporations and professional associations. Helping lay the groundwork for future Branding excellence and building from his 18-year involvement with the Young Presidents' Organization, he also makes time to coach young entrepreneurs.

While Ted Brands himself a master woodworker, his wife Marsha is more likely to call it "making sawdust." The two live between the island cottage he built in Muskoka and the desert home they designed together near Phoenix.
