What Makes A Brand Powerful?
Over on my Fast Company Experts blog, I offered some thoughts on the new Cone Nonprofit Power Brand 100 Study. Here is how my post begins:
Cone Inc released their “Cone Nonprofit Power Brand 100” report yesterday – in which it valued (and ranked) the brands of some of America’s leading social, environmental and animal organizations.

But I think that is the wrong discussion to have. I want to focus on something else – the very concept of brand, and its importance for nonprofit organizations, in today’s connected society.
