Open City on the Road: Branded in Detroit

August 29, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us on August 29th at Detroit City Distillery, as we close out our summer Open City series with the topic “Branded in Detroit”. The discussion will be around Detroit’s brand and how it’s being used by businesses, organizations, etc and its impact. We’ll also discuss how Detroit’s brand is an asset, how to “authentically” use it, and how not to exploit it, especially now with rekindled interest after a half of century of disinvestment.

Aaron Foley, Chief Storyteller for City of Detroit Government
Robert Uneek Courtney, CEO at Robert Courtney & Associates – A Marketing and Branding Agency

Bring your business cards! Not only will you need them for networking, but we’ll also draw a card before our panel discussion. Whoever is drawn has the opportunity to break the ice by presenting the audience with a small business concern.

Open City is a forum for Detroit’s aspiring and established small business owners to learn, network, and exchange information in a fun and lively atmosphere. Join us each month this summer at a new Detroit neighborhood location, where a select panel of speakers will discuss a relevant small business topic, followed by casual networking. Events are FREE and open to all with no rsvp required.
