Speaker:        Professor Tim Calkins, Kellogg School of Management

We live in a world of intense competition; companies face threats from all parts of the globe. The more profitable your business, the greater the chance you will soon encounter a new competitor.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re running a plumbing business, promoting a brand of deodorant, operating a neighborhood café, or leading a small charitable organization or church. Anyone responsible for managing an enterprise has to think about defense, because the world is full of competition, and with the rise of globalization, competition is only going to increase in the years ahead.

Join Kellogg Professor Tim Calkins, author of the new book, Defending Your Brand: How Smart Companies Use Defensive Strategy to Deal with Competitive Attacks, for a look at the shadowy world of defensive strategy. He’ll review why defense is so important, how to understand and evaluate competitive threats and how to develop an effective defense plan. He will also explore why companies so often fail to react when new competitors appear.
