The Silicon Valley Brand Forum was formed in October 1999 by Kevin Heney, Ron May and Marty Brandt. Since the first Brand Forum at Quantum in 2000, Kevin Heney has continued to direct the Silicon Valley Brand Forum with the assistance and guidance of Steve Farnsworth and Bob Kennedy. The SVBF was formed out of a need for an opportunity for brand professionals to exchange real-world ideas about managing brands in the technology-rich Silicon Valley.
The format for the forums has been mostly panel discussions with seasoned brand professionals discussing relevant branding topics and opening the discussion to questions and answers throughout the event. Over the years we have held workshops and round table discussions for targeted members of the branding community.
We are a grass roots organization, and rely completely on the volunteer efforts of brand professionals who want to see the organization succeed in its mission. If you would like to help out with the plannning and production of a brand forum please contact us.
