Do you want to gain industry respect, accelerate into an executive role, boost your earnings, or become an authority in your professional domain?

Whether you acknowledge it or not, you already have a personal brand. Prospective clients, recruiters, and employers have deeply ingrained perceptions about the value you bring to the table and the values you stand for. Recruiters use these opinions to throw professionals into ridiculous pay brackets just 30 minutes into the first meeting.

Are any of these holding you back?

  • Are you sick of having your strong technical skill sets overlooked during promotions while your technically inferior peers accelerate into executive roles?
  • Do employers and recruiters offer you salaries ridiculously lower than your technical skillsets deserve based on their opinions of your value?
  • Do you harbor ambitions to step out of a 9-5 monotonous role and start your own consulting business but have no means to attract prospective clients?
  • Are you afraid of what will happen to you if your role is made redundant or outsourced?
  • Have you left so much money on the table because you lack the confidence and strategies to negotiate what you deserve?

Not to worry, we have created this practical course to share proven strategies to develop a strong personal brand quickly.

Unlock the incredible power of personal branding

In today’s highly competitive marketplace, a strong personal brand is the most powerful weapon to stand out and become the obvious choice for employers and clients. This course will help you to quickly develop and sustain an outstanding personal brand.

It will provide you with several benefits, including:

  • You will outshine your colleagues at work and earn the respect of your peers and executives. That makes you the obvious choice for the next executive role.
  • You will be able to step out of a 9-5 role and set up a thriving consulting business anytime. Your thought leadership becomes your business card, a powerful magnet to attract prospects. Clients will compete for your expertise and when you tell your peers your daily consultancy fees, they will just exclaim, Wow!
  • You will gain leverage. Executive search agents will constantly knock on your door. Employers will ask you how much you want, and start-ups will invite you to join their advisory boards.
  • You will be engaged in high-visibility strategic projects, further improving your commercial acumen and exposure to key decision-makers.
  • You will be invited to speak at high profile conferences, further boosting your network. Over time, businesses and conference organizers will pay you to share your expertise, creating multiple streams of income.
  • By aligning your work with your deepest passions, work will never feel like work again.

The good news is that personal branding is no longer a preserve for a few self-anointed influencers. Any professional can apply the learning from this course to build and monetize a strong personal brand.
