Garcia delivers paper on brand personification

Dr. Leonardo Garcia, Jr., director of Graduate Studies of the College of Business and Economics, delivered a paper on Gaining Competitive Edge through Brand Personification in a MarkPlus Forum held at Shangri-la Hotel, Jakarta, Indonesia on July 30 and at the Westin Plaza Hotel, Surabaya, Indonesia on July 31. MarkPlus & Co., publisher of the Asia-wide circulated MarkPlus Quarterly, invited Garcia for the talk.

In his paper, Garcia observed that most company advertisers highlight only the rationale attributes of a brand.
