Guest blogger Elliott Hurst, CEO of interactive music technology company Supernova (www.supernova.com) strikes again with a surprise Thursday thirteen.
Here is @supernovelliott
As the owner of a growing business, we frequently talk about how to not only build the business, but build the brand of the business as well. A brand is a promise. A brand is something that the customer has certain expectations of, and above all, trust. So it got me thinking of great brands to emulate and take notes from. And being a proud Canadian, I thought I’d start with Canadian brands. Brands that are uniquely Canadian.
Top 13 Canadian Corporate brands (not including individuals ie Wayne Gretzky). What / Who would make your list?
In no order:
1. Tim Hortons
2. Blackberry (RIM)
3. Canadian Tire
4. Toronto Maple Leafs / Montreal Canadiens pick one or both
5. Cirque du Soliel
7. TD / RBC pick one or both
9. Air Canada
12. Molson Canadian / Labatt Blue pick one or both
13. Shoppers Drug Mart
Making this list was not as easy at it appears. Originally I had Just for Laughs in my list as well as Supernova but removed them for other, better know brands.
