How do you develop a personal brand?

Location: Birmingham


This workshop is not intended for celebrities or YouTube stars (!) but rather for people in corporate life who have an understanding of the need to develop a personal brand, but don’t know where to go next. It has been developed in a manner that avoids cookie cutter solutions, and allows time to work out which direction works well for you. Hints and tips in all areas of corporate life, we hope that a number of promotions (or career changes) will result from this Birmingham workshop.
