Your Personal Brand: Embrace the Power of You


  Lynn Manternach, PhD (Brand Arsonist and President, MindFire Communications)

You have a personal brand. Whether you've given it any thought or not, it's on display in every interaction. It's too important to leave to chance, especially if you're looking for an edge in the workplace. So what is your personal brand? How do you know for sure? And once you figure it out, what do you DO with that information? Dr. Lynn Manternach offers an easy-to-follow process for defining your personal brand and tips for embracing the power of you in the workplace and beyond.

The hands-on workshop that follows the keynote address gets participants started on the brand definition process. You'll learn how to build a solid brand foundation using personal brand research and you'll take home helpful tips and templates to guide you through the personal brand development process.
