It was refreshing to be able to collaborate and learn in an intimate, friendly setting with other school professionals. The conference was a perfect mix of information, fun and networking and I left with many tangible ideas that I can immediately apply at my school.
- Kelly Webster, Grove School
The Brand Together Conference was truly eye-opening and inspiring; all three days were jam-packed with amazing workshops that directly applied to communications/marketing people within schools. It was the first time that I was surrounded by people who fully understood my job role and tasks. Everyone was very willing to not only share, but also to learn from each other and ask questions of all of the other attendees. THANK YOU to Peapod Design for planning a wonderful conference that, in my opinion, was a much-needed resource in the field of school communications.
- Tara Hopfenspirger, Immaculate Heart Academy
Peapod’s Brand Together Conference — is an incredible three-days, jammed-packed with ideas to help you get it creative juices flowing.
- Sally Pallatto, Yale University
A great conference for those going through a branding (or re-branding) exercise--or for any school looking to carve out a niche for itself in a crowded market.
- Caleb Cochran, Wentworth Institute of Technology
I returned from the Brand Together conference brimming with ideas and not just about branding. It was informative, interactive and fun.
- Susan Schoenberger, Hartford Seminary College
Brand together was an incredible experience, see you next year.
- Bart Klemensowski, Dwight-Englewood School
I took away so many useful ideas that when I spoke about the conference with my head of school, word quickly spread (even to the trustee level) that I attended a powerful conference. Well worth the investment of time and resources.
- Laura Dianis, Stanwich School

** b-together: Good things happen when we can be together, so we’re creating “b-together” cohort groups to help you make the most of your Brand Together experience. Each b-together group will be composed of like schools in categories such as single sex, K-8, college prep, etc. With a team leader to guide and facilitate, each b-together group will have scheduled times each day of the conference to meet and share work experiences and ideas, get solutions, and present their marketing materials to receive valuable feedback from the cohort. In addition, as an attendee you will become a member of an on-line invitation-only LinkedIn group that connects you with other Brand Together alumni. This valuable networking resource will enable us to Brand Together forever.
