Entrepreneurs@Manchester with John Murphy, Founder of Interbrand

Join us to hear from John Murphy, founder of the world’s first branding consultancy, Interbrand.

Event Time
22 Oct 16:00 - 22 Oct 17:30

Alliance Manchester Business School, Booth Street West, Manchester, M15 6PB
Event Type
John Murphy, Founder of Interbrand

As a pioneer of brand valuation, John is the creator of brands, with Interbrand naming many familiar household names, including HobNobs, Homebase, Gala Bingo, and Mondeo.

After selling Interbrand in 1994, John bought Plymouth Gin. At the time of the acquisition, the distillery was producing 3000 cases of gin a year, but after John’s repackaging and PR campaign, sales increased to 150,000 cases by 2003.

Come and join us, as John talks through his fascinating career, giving a delightful warts-and-all account of when things went well and when things didn’t run quite so smoothly.
