Personal Branding: The Simple Nuts and Bolts of an Often Complicated Brand
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CDT)
New Orleans, LA
Where does your "Brand You" fit in today's convoluted mixture of deadlines, the internet and social media? Can you really separate your personal and professional brands? How do you proactively manage your "brand you" 24/7 and still get a full 8 hours of sleep? It's a lot easier than you think.
Jeff Funk will run our 1-hour workshop on personal branding, educating us on best practices, tips, and tricks, followed by one on one consultations with each attendee. Please come prepared with an inventory of your social media presence, especially LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
This event, hosted by the New Orleans Women in Technology, is open to everyone of all genders and backgrounds.
