Defining Your Personal & Professional Brand
Everybody says you have to build a professional brand and reputation to succeed. But how do you distinguish yourself and be remembered when everyone else has the same goals? Add to that the fact that you’re busy, you want to network “the right way,” AND you need to get results for your efforts.
You need to define your brand. Your brand authentically reflects who you are – your value proposition. Personal branding is a way of establishing and consistently reinforcing who you are and what you stand for in your career and life.
Join us for a panel discussion on how you can be on the front foot of strengthening your personal brand within your organization and beyond.
