Did you know that your personal brand has the power to ignite your professional succes or stifle your advancement? How you present yourself says as much about your credibility as a resume or reference ever could, whether you’re job hunting, joining a firm, cultivating a client or preparing for an important business meeting. What’s your brand saying about you?
In this session, you will learn how to create your brand and align your professional competence with your outside packaging and personal presentation in order to build confidence and attract opportunities. It is a fact that now, more than ever, it is essential for professionals to manage the image they convey in interviews, meetings, networking events and other occasions where making a strong and positive impression is required in order to land the job, get the client or close the deal.
