Personal branding for leaders is no longer optional--it is imperative to be successful. You are competing every day whether you have a job or are looking for one, positioning for a career move or starting a business. You may already have a brand, but is it the right brand to take you where you want to go?  You need to be crystal clear about your audience, their care-abouts, and how you are delivering value—both from a rational standpoint and from an emotional one.

In this interactive seminar with breakout sessions, we will cover:
  • What personal branding is and why it is important
  • A proven five-step system for strategic personal branding with examples
  • How to identify your Cake and Icing (rational value and emotional value) for a winning brand
  • How to develop clear and compelling messages for online and offline branding
Key outputs include:
  • Your positioning statement
  • Your evidence messages
  • Your leadership branding scorecard
