ABX 2018: Discover Your Why to Develop Your Personal Brand

This ABX session is sponsored by SMPS Boston. New this year, SMPS Boston members get member pricing for all ABX sessions! Email us for the discount code. 

A personal brand gives you the ability to stand out in a sea of similar people. Your brand is your reputation. It’s your calling card. It’s what you’re known for and how people experience you. It’s about bringing who you are to what you do and how you do it. A positive personal brand encompasses the key traits that embody who you are, highlighting your best qualities such as problem solver, creative thinker, connector, dealmaker, or whatever matters most to you that you are capable of sustaining. Delivering your brand clearly will create a memorable experience, either positively or negatively. The easiest way to share your brand is to have something to say, when people ask, you tell them about yourself. You should already know how you would answer this question. Remember, you want the person to leave knowing your favorite traits about yourself, enough to get them interested in getting to know more about you. This session will take you through the key insights into how sharing your WHY connects people at a deeper level and will take you through exercises to develop your personal WHY and create your WHY driven elevator pitch.
