Upcoming Event: Brand Yourself for Leadership and Business Success

Personal branding is a requirement for success in business.  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.  Learn how to stand out from the crowd and achieve your goals with a strong personal brand.

Karen Kang will conduct this interactive workshop and cover: 
  • Why personal branding is a requirement in today’s changing world
  • Important personal branding lessons from well-known business leaders
  • How to stand out from the competition
  • How to identify your Cake and Icing (rational value and emotional value) for a winning brand
  • A framework for your brand strategy
Karen Kang is a recognized brand strategist and the founder and CEO of BrandingPays LLC.  She is also the author of Branding Pays: The Five-Step System to Reinvent Your Personal Brand. Karen will be available to autograph her book.
