Introduction by -
Kate Hannemann – Managing Director – Communikate et al

Facilitated by YWP Committee

Personal branding used to include nothing more than a simple business card with your name on it, but with the development of social media and an increasingly individualized society, the brand you build around yourself is perhaps the single most important way to stand out in your spheres of influence. Personal branding is the means by which people remember you. It's more than a trademark, it is how you present yourself online and offline to potential clients, work contacts, colleagues and customers. Your personal brand builds you and the organisation you work for. Facilitated by the YWP committee this session will provide you with the tools to create your own personal brand and increase your value in the workplace.

7:45-8:00
