It’s been observed that many top management professionals, executives and independent consultants (doctors, advocates, physicians etc) do outstanding work in their business domain. Eventually they become distinguished authority in the domain. And because they are different from others, most of them naturally wish to gain name, fame, popularity, attention, mindshare, respect and monitory returns from the society and industry. Unfortunately, very few of them actually get such returns.
Where do they fail? They fail in personal packaging and personal marketing. Even professionals who have successfully marketed products and services for their companies fail to market themselves. This workshop is for all such people who wish to become a personal brand but don’t know how to do that.
This is the era where most of the information exchange & trade is happening over internet and small internet based applications like blogs, business networking sites (like LinkedIn and Xing) and twitter are making big difference for corporates and individuals. With the help of these internet tools, building a personal brand has become easy and effective.
The objective of this personal branding training (1 day workshop) is to educate the attendants on what is personal branding, how to create a personal brand and how we can leverage on latest Web 2.0 social media (Blog, LinkedIn, Twitter etc) to build and maintain your personal brand.
