From Country Branding to successful Company Branding

Norway is ranked among the highest on the FutureBrand Country Index and is a country people ultimately want to invest in, live in, visit, and buy goods and services from. Finland is climbing high as well and many Finnish companies choose to embrace national values in their products and services. 

How is a Country Brand developed? How are national values and identity communicated? When is the Nordic Brand stronger than the national brand? Is Country Branding used to its full potential? How can country related communication be used to develop your company brand and increase customer engagement? Join discussion of interesting examples and benchmarks.
