    10 Point Capital's Tom Wells: Private Equity and Franchising, Post Covid!

    in Business

    Tom Wells has only been in the franchise/private equity space for about eight or nine years, but a finer collection of mentors, guides and partners would have been difficult for him to assemble.  I'm talking the likes of: Mike Rotundo, Scott Pressly and Charles Watson, as his mentors.  The guidance provided by this group over the years, has helped to elevate Tom's core competencies in franchising, to a similar level that his BS in Finance at Boston College and MBA in Business, from Chicago’s Booth School have provided for him, in finance and enterprise.  Add eight or more years of Southeast Franchise Forum and IFA programming to the mix and today, Tom Wells stands toe-to-toe, with the best of the best in the franchise private equity space.  And, better still, he’s here right now, to tell us all about it.

    Julius Geis Creator and Leading Authority of Identity Built Branding

    in Business

    Julius Geis Creator and Leading Authority of Identity Built Branding™
    Julius Geis is a branding expert who has created brand strategies for over 40 companies. He is the creator of Identity Built Branding (IBB), a new methodology that sees a brand as a responsive organism that exists within the context of its surroundings. Julius Geis is the founder of ‘Aina, which won the iF Design 2020.
    There is no universally accepted definition of a brand. If you’re a doctor and you say: “appendectomy”, everyone in the hospital knows what you’re talking about. But if you’re in a boardroom with 25 executives and you say “branding”, chances are each one will have their own definition. Julius says that branding in its current form is dead. It’s time to move away from brand fakes that claim ownership and manipulate people to achieve their objectives. Let’s embrace branding designed to strengthen our collective connections between people, brands, and the environment.
    Julius joins us to share how to build real brands, come out stronger and be ready for the next big thing.
