Paul McCann- CDG Brand

  • Presentation Title:

    Luxury Brands, can we learn from them?

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Creativity is not a learned behaviour, it takes talent, imagination and self-belief. Engaging people through emotions, superior workmanship, and a luxurious aura is an art in itself. Branding goods and services delves deeper past wealth and opulence.
