We attended a US Branding workshop with GBBC
Last week we had the pleasure of joining a GBBC Workshop on the topic of ‘Branding your company in the US’. The session was led by Theobald Fox and centered around key tips for companies to consider in terms of branding and clarifying value proposition in relation to the US market.
For Datactics, this event was particularly relevant as Datactics is seeking to further expand into the US Market. As part of Invest Northern Ireland’s ‘Graduate to Export’ programme, Brendan McCarthy will travel to the United States later this year to represent Datactics in the region. We attended this workshop to gain insight into US branding trends, ‘Marketing Must Do’s’, creating a US value proposition and messaging, and common pitfalls to avoid.
We caught up with Jenna Lloyd, US Partner at Theobald Fox and we asked her what she thinks are the biggest roadblocks that UK-based companies face coming over to the US… Read the full round-up here.

As part of Invest Northern Ireland’s ‘Graduate to Export’ programme, Brendan will travel to the United States later this year to represent Datactics in the region.
“My role in-market will help drive Datactics’ international expansion plans by sourcing new business and potential partnerships within North America.This webinar offered advice for scaling tech companies growing in the United States and the necessary steps to take when forming new partnerships with banks and other financial institutions.
