AUG 11 | Free Personal Branding Update Call
More than ever before, professionals today are charged with managing their own careers. More than ever before, coaching, career services, and professional resume writing are gaining traction as legitimate industries – for the betterment of those in our industry and professionals worldwide (in my humble opinion!).
At the crux of it all is the foundational idea of personal branding. The ideas of personal branding are simple – it's what is authentic to you that differentiates you from your peers and is relevant and compelling to those who make decisions about you. But getting clarity in these areas and building a strong, unique promise of value isn't easy.
Join Susan Chritton and Marie Zimenoff for a free call to talk personal branding and share about the Reach Personal Branding programs that came under the Career Thought Leaders umbrella this Spring.
You'll also learn about the Reach Personal Branding methodology and the unique opportunity to become a Certified Personal Brand Strategist (CPBS). The deadline to get the early bird pricing for the CPBS program is August 15.
