You love strategy and structure. You know exactly where you want to be in 5 years – 10 even. Your solutions are timeless and you always think of building brands that last.
Laura Ries, one of our RULER speakers, is just like you!
PRESIDENT AND CO-FOUNDER AT RIES & RIES
Laura is an internationally recognized branding expert, best-selling author, and television personality. She is the focused President of Ries & Ries, a company she co-founded with her father, the legendary Al Ries. As RULER marketing strategists, they have been building powerful organizations – among which are Microsoft, Ford, Disney, Samsung, and Unilever – by helping leaders refocus and simplify their brands. One of the main pillars of this process? Generating the enthusiastic support of each brand’s entire team, without which all efforts would be made in vain. Their expertise has also translated into best-selling books such as The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding, The Fall of Advertising & the Rise of PR, or The Origin of Brands.
Laura never misses an opportunity to also let her REBEL layer surface, especially when iconic brands need a refresh to stay relevant. After all, even amidst coherent and clear identities, brands must still surprise and innovate. Take it from Laura, herself: her book Visual Hammer shows readers how to “nail your brand into the mind with the emotional power of a visual hammer.”
