BRAND YOU: How to Market Yourself

Did you know you already have a brand? As Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, once said, "A brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room".

The best way to market yourself is to build a brand that makes you distinctive and memorable. People will ask for you.

John Purkiss and David Royston Lee will show you how to build a unique, powerful brand, based on Jungian archetypes and the latest thinking on personal marketing:

  • Your talents
  • Your values
  • Your unique selling proposition
  • Your purpose
  • Your brand identity 

John and David will also talk about how to use online social networking (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc) to build your brand.
