"It takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently." 

– Warren Buffet

Your personal brand is the unique combination of skills and experiences that make you you. Effective personal branding will differentiate you from other professionals in your field.

Most ‘experts’ seem to think Personal Branding is either about fashion tips from Gok, or social media promotion.  It is about far more than that. It takes 1/7th of a second for the human brain to classify people as attractive or otherwise. From there the brain extrapolates to assess trustworthiness and likability. Credibility and trust are hard to create, and very easy to destroy. This Personal Branding session explains how to use expertise, polish and poise, to gain a reputation as a heavyweight.


This workshop examines:

  • The 3 practical elements of the Personal Brand

  • The 7 principles of a powerful Personal Brand

  • How to tweak your brand

  • Promoting your brand
