Leatherman has been a proud Oregon brand for more than 25 years, growing from a single product offering (the Pocket Survival Tool) to a line of over 30 models, a 90,000 square-foot facility and more than 400 employees.
As part of a growth strategy, Leatherman acquired LED Lenser in 2011, a respected worldwide leader of LED light manufacturing distributed in more than 50 countries around the world.
We’re fortunate to have Leatherman Marketing Communications Manager, Juli Warner, join us to provide an insider’s view of these dynamic companies and the strategies being used to expand the brand awareness of Led Lenser.
Topics will include:
- Best practices for integrating a new brand within your company
- Strategies for bringing a lesser known brand into greater consumer awareness
- Effective marketing tactics without a big agency budget
Registration for this event is closed.
