This toolkit is for:
Helping you to identify all the different components of your
brand so that you can keep consistent when communicating them.
Your organisation’s brand brings together 5 main elements:
• Who you are
• What you do
• Why you are important
• What you say
• How you look
Brand reality is the truth about your organisation.
Brand perception is what people believe about your organisation,
regardless of whether or not it is true.
Your brand perception is often considered to be ‘what people say
about you when you’re not in the room.’
If you want to ensure that your brand perception is as close to your
brand reality as possible, you need to be very clear in communicating
the key components of your brand, consistently and concisely, so
that people hear exactly what you want them to hear.

on brand as possible.
