P.2.3 Brand Key Messages


Develop key messages and talking points for the different stakeholders of your district.


“Key messages are the main points of information you want your audience to hear, understand, and
remember. They are bite-sized summations that articulate what you do, why you do it, how you are
different, and what value you bring to stakeholders. Key messages are important because they serve as the foundation of an organization’s branding and marketing efforts and should be reflected in all written and spoken communications.” – “Developing Key Messages for Effective Communication” by MSKTC (linked below)
