StartUpNV Sip’N Learn – “Stop Throwing Branding and Marketing Money at the Wall” with Bill West

In this presentation, Bill will break down branding and marketing smoke and mirrors to help businesses get clarity, direction and stop throwing money at the wall like it’s wet spaghetti.

Along with his team of forward-thinkers and norm-shakers, Bill has developed a demystifying approach to branding and marketing that brings serious punch to business large and small (yes, medium too).

Bill will cover …

  • … the intersection between business strategy and creative marketing.
  • … the distinction between branding and marketing, and how they wildly influence each other.
  • … why the world hates marketing, namely marketing agencies.
  • … off-the-cuff answers to participants’ off-the-cuff questions!

About Bill

Owner and lead eyebrow-raiser of Bareknuckle Brand Marketing, Bill pulls from his background as a speech writer, ghostwriter and university writing instructor to help entrepreneurs develop a rich, compelling, articulate brand and customer-seducing marketing.

His work has been featured in media sources such as the New York Times, CNBC and Fox News; across financial websites such as e-trade; and on the back of vodka bottles and snacks packages.

A transplant from the sticks of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Bill dug his roots in Reno, NV 18 years ago … finishing his masters, starting his first business, supporting local craft breweries and singing for a rock-n-roll band you’ve never heard of.

Doors open at 5:00pm and Bill will speak at 5:45pm. 

Free parking is available at the Historic 5th St School, accessed on 4th, just north off of Clark. The Innovation Center is 1.5 blocks north on the opposite side of the street.
