Workshop Overview

How will this workshop benefit you, your team, your company?

This workshop will be broken down into four sections including:


An introduction to personal branding, why you need one, and where opportunities begin with your personal brand.


An overview of assets that are needed to build your personal brand and keep it consistent across all platforms.


A breakout session on how to leverage your personal brand and put it in front of the right people.

4. Advancement

A Q&A discussion on the next steps once you’ve successfully built your personal brand.

**The first two sections will be covered in the pre-workshop work and during the workshop itself.

The primary objective of the workshop is to create a clear and concise message that not only creates opportunities but also creates and attracts the relevant opportunities to the goals set forth, as well as leaving you, your team, your company, with tools to achieve those goals.

We first identify the message and positioning needed to leverage the brand, in order to achieve specific and clearly defined goals. From there, we will detail the digital assets, media materials, and promotional content that should be created and used throughout each part of the personal branding process and into the management of your campaign to capture and create additional growth opportunities.

Some of these opportunities include, but are not limited to:

  • Growing professional network for thought-leaders

  • Increased brand reaches

  • Strategic partnership opportunities

  • Personal and organizational press opportunities

  • Speaking opportunities

  • Social media account growth and management

  • Identifying inroads to memberships and/or positions of authority
