Workshop: Develop Your Visible Personal Brand
24 May 2016 @ 09:30 - 12:30
Jeff Bezos suggests that “your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room”. Let that be what you want them to say.
Your personal strengths, experiences and the way you work are as unique to you as your genes. Together, they can create a personal brand at the heart of a successful and satisfying career. This workshop will help you unlock the DNA of your personal brand. Through discussion and exercises, you’ll start to uncover your Distinctive qualities, you’ll begin writing a powerful personal Narrative, and you’ll plot the Actions which make you more visible and successful. Along the way, we’ll discuss the benefits of personal branding for career progression and explore the boundaries between individual branding and corporate conformity. Our focus will be firmly fixed upon practicalities: what you can do, how you can do it and how to maximise the value of your actions. If you’d like to build visibility and influence with authenticity, then join us to discover the DNA of your personal brand.
OBJECTIVE OF THE TRAINING:
This workshop explores the aspects of personal branding which can help to build a successful career. We aim to help delegates to better understand their own strengths and unique qualities and to use these consistently and visibly to progress their working lives. Whilst recognising the role that personal appearance can play, the focus is primarily upon what people do, how they do it and how to maximise the value of their action.
DURING THE WORKSHOP DELEGATES WILL:
- Learn about the benefits of personal branding for career progression and explore the boundaries between individual branding and corporate conformity
- Use exercises and discussion to lay the foundations for their own personal brand, built on their unique strengths, values and passions
- Share experiences and develop strategies to increase and improve visibility in a variety of settings
BY THE END OF THE WORKSHOP DELEGATES WILL:
- Understand why a clear and consistent personal brand is a vital element for career success
- Hold the key components of their personal brand and know how to develop it
- Have an action plan to build personal visibility, tailored to their working preferences, situation and corporate culture
This workshop is ideally suited to women aiming for middle leadership who may be struggling to differentiate themselves from their peers, or to women who are finding it hard to achieve visibility in their firm or sector.
