Many of the worlds’ most successful companies are instantly recognisable by their brands. Brands which have been built up and very carefully maintained, in some instances, for generations. They are not only recognisable, but they also provide customers and clients with instant peace of mind when the brand has a good reputation. Company brands and reputations are intrinsically linked and for a company to succeed it is important to have both a strong brand and a good reputation.
