Brand ambassadors can be a key element in spreading the story and messaging of a winery. This is particularly important for luxury wineries, where sales are more brand-driven vs packaging or shelf placement driven. Brand ambassadors can take a variety of “shapes and sizes”, from being part of people’s jobs to a full team of brand ambassadors globally. This session will explore the role of brand ambassadors, how they add value, and the common archetypes of effective brand ambassadors in the context of luxury wine.
