Organisations invest large amounts of time and money to create a winning brand and to evoke certain perceptions within seconds. How can you, as an individual achieve the same results? Change is upon and it is now more important than ever to stand out from the crowd. Brexit has dominated business for the past 3.5 years. The official day has come and gone. The UK is officially out of the EU, but Brexit still isn’t quite complete.
What does that mean for individuals and business? The answers are still unclear. According to the Edelman Trust Barometer for 2020 fear eclipses hope for the first time.
Specifically, 83 percent of employees say they fear losing their job, attributing it to the gig economy, a looming recession, a lack of skills, cheaper foreign competitors, immigrants who will work for less, automation, or jobs being moved to other countries. Business must take the lead on solving the trust paradox because it has the greatest freedom to act. Its immediate mandates are clear. The Time for Brand YOU is now!
This session will introduce practical interactive exercises and tips on how to create your personal brand, leverage your points of difference, define and understand your Unique Selling Proposition, the value you bring to the business, how to create impact within your company.
You will leave with the tools to effectively build your personal brand to help differentiate you from the competition and allow you to build trust with prospective clients and employers
