Soon my new book BRAND TURNAROUND How Brands Gone Bad Returned to Glory…and the 7 Game Changers That Made a Difference will hit book stores everywhere. As promised in the book I will post and continue to update my list of Brand Turnaround resources in my blog.

Brand turnarounds can be tough. Having trusted resources to add to your arsenal can certainly excel your efforts. Below are some of my favorite resources that I recommend. They are companies and tools that provide brand related services and knowledge, experts who have advised me and other books and online publications that I’ve gained a lot from.
