How to Build an Influential Professional Brand and Make it WORK for You
When people hear your name, certain perceptions instantly come to mind. Are they the perceptions YOU would choose? They should be. Your career might just depend on it. You already have a personal brand, whether you are managing it or not.
Personal Branding is about how others perceive and “experience” you and about the impression you leave behind. A critical tool for business and career success, your personal brand should convey the best version of yourself, communicate your uniqueness and value and instantly connect to those you most want to influence. Women, especially, have found that learning how to speak up for themselves, by articulating their uniqueness and value has been a critical tool for gaining more visibility and influence, and for attracting greater career opportunities.
- Assure your impressions are exactly as you’d have them: Glowing. Influential. Uniquely Valuable—those of a powerful and influential leader. Join us on April 24th to learn how.
