Are You Your Own CEO? The Importance of Personal Branding

We are CEOs of our companies: Me Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called YOU. – Tom Peters

Whether you are 25 or 55, having a personal brand is necessary. Tom Peters was one of the first to explore the significance of personal branding in an article he wrote for Fast Company in the 1990s. Once primarily used by Silicon Valley CEOs, branding has evolved into a tool used by professionals, regardless of their industry or career level, to highlight and distinguish themselves within a highly competitive global and domestic business market.

Led by Jennefer Witter, CEO and founder of The Boreland Group Inc, this presentation will provide the seven steps needed to create a brand.

– Unpack the underlying structure of difficult conversations

– Increase understanding when parties see things differently

– Navigate strong emotions (yours and theirs)

– Speak up with clarity and impact
