Clarifying and amplifying a purpose is one of the most exciting strategic opportunities a brand – and you – can embrace. In today’s world, it is crucial to bring your purpose into your brand story. It creates what has been missing – a roadmap to show any brand how to make it happen. Clients and customers are seeking organizations that understand that they want both their work and their spending to have more meaning. In other words, they are looking for organizations that embrace a larger purpose. Learn how organizations that understand this are experiencing unprecedented growth.

Dan Salva is an author and builder of brands with experience that stretches over three decades and covers architecting and executing purpose-driven brand experiences for regional, national, and international organizations. Dan received dual degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and, over the years, co-founded three companies, including Will & Grail – a brand innovation firm. Today he helps organizations clarify their Big Audacious Meaning and then bring it into their story to transform their success.
