"BE YOU" - Your Personal Brand Seminar
Friday, March 2, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)
This seminar is for anyone who may feel they don’t know how to best represent what they want in their career. If you struggle to answer the question, “What do you do for a living?” then this is seminar for you. After 5 years of asking experienced professionals, “what do you want to do” and getting many blank stares I realized there is an epidemic among many of us. You will achieve your personal success when you take the time to truly understand what your strength and passion is and learn how to authentically showcase it to the world.
Five valuable benefits you’ll gain from attending this seminar
|1 »||Be able to articulate your personal brand|
|2 »||Improve your understanding of the marketplace and available work|
|3 »||Sharpen your objective, resume and personal portfolio|
|4 »||Project confidence when networking|
|5 »||Take your current skills and package them into what you want|
A special message from the seminar leader & Simplicity Founder, Lisa Hufford:
When you understand what you are passionate about and what your unique differentiators are, you are unstoppable! Why is this workshop unique? As a previous 7-year Microsoft employee and now Consultant to Microsoft since 2006, I have a unique perspective on both sides and am passionate about sharing this information with other Consultants empowering them to land their perfect project. I developed this seminar because I wish it was available when I started consulting! I have made every mistake in the book and share them with you so you don’t have to.
The foundation of this Workshop is understanding Clients needs so that you can land projects, be invaluable and gain referrals. How do we know what Clients want? We conducted a Listening Tour and asked them and they were happy to tell us.
Expertise alone won’t bring you the type of project work you desire. But put your expertise together with your passion and understanding Client needs and you’re on your way!
Look forward to seeing you at the next seminar!
We’ll answer your most important questions about how to land project work including:
» What is my story? How do I tell it?
» What do clients value?
» What type of work is out there?
» How do I take my previous skills and translate them into project work?
» How do I transition back into the workforce after been away for several years?
» What am I passionate about?
» What type of work do I most enjoy?
» What is my unique value proposition?
» How do I stand out among so many people looking for work?
» How do I best represent myself?
» What is my personal brand?
