Level Up Your Career with Personal Branding: Webinar (01/13/16) 

Personal branding has become a significant part of our culture, and the Internet has made it very clear that it's not a good idea to leave one's personal brand to chance.  You want to make sure that, when your story is told, it's you telling it, and that it's a good story! In this workshop, we're going to look at the benefits of personal branding, and how you can either build your personal brand from scratch, or improve what you already have.  We'll discuss steps you can take to help solidify your own personal brand.  You'll learn the questions to ask, the foundation to build on and best practices to use to really make yourself stand out. 

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the benefits of having and maintaining a personal brand
  • Learn best practices for creating a personal brand
