98% of job candidates struggle to find their next opportunity. The 2% of candidates have learned to build and manage their brand so opportunities come to them. There is a reason why headhunters prefer to target the 2%. The workshop Building Your Personal Brand provides you with a road map to building your brand and learning how to position yourself so you attract opportunities.
First impressions are important. Within the first few seconds of meeting someone, people form an opinion of us. But our brand extends beyond our image to include our values and vision. We also need to know how to promote our brand, build and nourish relationships both online and offline. The workshop will teach you how to create, promote and enhance your brand.
