BRAND STRATEGY BY J.CINQUINA
Questionnaire -
For Execs.
The following brand questionnaire is designed to get me up to speed with your history, what's important to you and your brand, your current position, and importantly, where you are going.

By answering these questions in a survey format, we can forego unnecessary questions during our workshop and focus heavily on guided strategic conversations.

As a general rule, it requires a coffee and some brain power - People usually take between 1 - 1.5 hours to complete.
