Celebrating the accomplishments of world’s leading branding experts

In the era of Twitter and Facebook, brand building has become a unique challenge. It is impossible for companies to set up a clear, unified corporate identity. A decade ago most less sure-footed companies were struggling to identify how to be perceived and leveraged in the marketplace. They hired ad agencies and a swarm of bots that resulted in better positioning in the marketplace and more coherent marketing. At its core is brand and corporate identity. Looking back on the past decade, there are a handful of branding geniuses who have accelerated corporate branding to the forefront of the digital scene. These innovative minds have helped a wide range of companies and individuals untap their true potential and thrive in this continuously evolving market.

Industry Leaders Magazine has rounded up the brightest folks in the branding space. They are authors, speakers, bloggers, podcasters who have helped companies secure business on crucial channels.
