"Effective Brand Leadership is an invaluable guide for anyone involved in the food service sector. It breaks new ground in mapping out the architecture of brand creation and the key crucial stages that follow – brand growth and evolution. It also moves beyond these stages by exploring the existential threats to brand vibrancy and success and the key steps required to breathe new life into brands that have lost their way. Its authors Chris Edger and Tony Hughes are uniquely placed to provide this articulation of the UK's branded foodservice sector's collective reflection on brand creation, development and renewal. They combine intellectual rigour with hands-on experience. Chris has latterly distinguished himself as the UK's leading teacher and author on the subject of multi-site leadership, whilst Tony Hughes is often cited as the most influential brand architect of his generation…" —Paul Charity, Editor and Founder of PropelInfo (rated by Allegra Securities as the #2 most influential person in the UK Food Service industry)
