Core Values as a Marketing Tool

Recorded On: 04/24/2018

Presenter: David Lecours 
Tuesday, April 24, 2–3:30 p.m. EST/1 p.m. CST/Noon MT/11 a.m. PST

Session Description

A/E/C firms love to talk about their culture to lure both clients and talent.

Culture is the shared behaviors and beliefs of your firm. So, how do you share your culture with a prospective hire or client? Don’t they have to experience it?

First, codify the shared behaviors and beliefs of your firm as written Core Values. Sadly, most firm leaders develop a set of banal Core Values at a weekend retreat, then send them out in an equally uninspired mass email to all employees. But, as you’ll learn in this webinar, Core Values can be so much more. A creative manifestation of your Core Values is a powerful marketing tool and an essential artifact of your culture. An artifact that prospective hires or clients can experience to determine if there is a match. 

Session Learning Objectives

During this webinar, participants will apprehend:

  • …how to create, or refine, your firm’s Core Values
  • …to design a promotional piece that manifests your Core Values
  • …where to share this creative manifestation of your Core Values
  • …how to leverage this marketing tool for recruiting talent and clients
