Become a Certified Brand Strategist

The training is tough, the benefits are many.

As a Brand Establishment Certification candidate, you’ll become part of a brand development process that will elevate your game, differentiate you and your agency and help you produce much more strategic work.

To achieve a CBS (Certified Brand Strategist) designation you will become part of a 5-month curriculum with text books and scheduled section reviews with the leaders of the Brand Establishment, case study preparation, a review of your readiness from our independent BE Certification Advisory Review Board, the completion of a final exam and, finally, an in person peer review presentation.

An important and beneficial marketing advantage of becoming a CBS is that you will be able to promote yourself as “the only Certified Brand Strategist in your market and one of just a few in North America.” This important and valuable distinction is possible because members are provided an exclusive license in their Designated Marketing Area (DMA). Now, that’s valuable differentiation.

Experience the financial rewards of moving yourself and your shop into the 21st century providing a more strategic, consultative approach to helping appreciative clients grow their business (and you’ll be the only professional in your region certified to do it).

You will become part of a network comprised of smart, forward thinking agency principals who want to get better every day and win in every pitch.

It is a network of like-minded professionals who support, teach and share with each other and, together, advance the prestige and importance of working with a competent well trained and superior marketing partner – stuff their clients fully understand and benefit from.

If you are you looking for a proven way to energize your agency, add a major revenue stream, a relevant expertise, a way to “get in the door” and connect with C-level executives, consider The Brand Establishment’s proven approach.

Certification is not for everyone. It requires a high level of commitment and dedication to becoming one of the best of the best in this field. Is that you?

Elevate the conversation. True differentiation.
