Born within a brand strategy consultancy, Brand Amplifier (BA) has developed an effective curriculum that is delivered in an intensive 4-workshop series, culminating with a final pitch and judging panel to award the best brands. The business know-how of successful entrepreneurs coupled with cash injections for winning teams makes BA a powerful launch pad for brand amplification.
Practicing what it preaches, Brand Amplifier’s mission is single-minded and consistent: empower women entrepreneurs by helping their businesses thrive in a tough economy and provide employment. Brand Amplifier’s founder, Jeannette Pritchard, explains: “With 4 editions and 55 alumni under our belt, Brand Amplifier has boosted confidence, brand focus and results for all women taking part in the programme. To date, programme graduates have sustained an astounding 85% success rate thanks to the advice, camaraderie and invaluable networking support provided during their early start-up phase”.
BA is an ideal programme for all types of businesses, with graduates from various industries including wellness, beauty, technology, and event services. Participants learn how to effectively amplify the reach and voice of their business, reaching their target audiences, securing financial investment and even achieving national and international media exposure. Recent alumni have been featured this year on Channel 4’s Four Rooms and BBC’s The One Show. 100% of BA alumni recommend the programme’s effectiveness in growing their brands and their confidence.
Mentorship and networking play a key part in the programme but the focus is on education, harnessing the know-how of inspiring women who have succeeded themselves, and who are generous with advice, opinions and constructive criticism that first-time entrepreneurs need in order to succeed.
