About this Event:
You have life-changing gifts and talents for a reason, but not enough people know your name. It's time to make yourself and your work VISIBLE.
Despite being incredibly hard workers who execute flawlessly on the job, many high achievers still struggle with self promotion. If you've been working hard for your employer, or delivering exceptional results for clients, you may think that your work should "speak for itself," and perhaps it should. But in the digital age, a great work product isn't enough anymore. In order to get the opportunities your skills have earned, you must do your part to share your story, your message and your skills with the world. You must build your most powerful personal brand. But how do you get going?
During this session, Amanda Miller Littlejohn will share her powerful and proven framework for building a personal brand that continuously attracts business and career opportunities. You'll learn how to package your genius by discovering:
• how to achieve CLARITY on what you have to offer the world
• how to make the case for your value
• how to narrow down your brand and focus on your unique areas of opportunity
• what you should share on social media to position yourself as an expert
• the roles of public speaking, content creation and media in personal branding
• how to uncover your big ideas and even monetize your expertise
Passed over for promotions? Overlooked by potential clients? Not on the radar of those who matter? If you're tired of feeling INVISIBLE in your industry, herein lies the process to position yourself as the expert you are. It's time for you to package your genius so you can create the opportunity you deserve!
This session will be introduced by Silvia Dumitrescu, WNG Board member and Chair of the WNG Women's Leadership Forum.
