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.
