nFocus w. Annie Koshy takes a focused look at three primary components: People, Places and Events as they all interact on a local, national and international branding and marketing perspective.
The first component looks at people and the milestones they have in their life, as they build their brand. What have been their challenges, achievements and breakthrough moments and how are they utilizing their story to market themselves?
The second component takes a look at events that bring our communities together and the messages conveyed to the larger Canadian community through those events.
The third component acknowledges the fact that we are in a digital era and our stories and voices heard locally are an echo of stories and voices from other parts of the world as well. We look at sharing the journeys and success of influential people of global repute who are changing the world with their work and message.
Each week, nFocus will celebrate the People, Places and Events that serve to entertain, challenge and ultimately, inspire us all.
