How attractive is your personal brand? Can you draw in the people – the rock star employees, employers and clients – who could make an enormous difference in your effort to share your unique gifts with the world and fulfill your highest potential? Can you command respect from senior stakeholders, get team buy-in for your strategies, and effectively align other people’s perceptions with the delivery of job outcomes?

The reality is this: if we want to do any sort of work with people of high accomplishment, we ourselves must exude big-time brand strength – regardless of whether we work for ourselves or for someone else.

Join us on Tuesday November 29th at 6:15pm where Coin Branding President Andris Pone will share some practical insights on how Product Managers can build and improve their personal brand. Presented concepts are derived from his 13 years of intellectual property earned by building brands for corporations including Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Canadian Tire, for employees at Sun Life Financial, BMO, RBC and for many individual entrepreneurs. Attendees will get an overview of the exact work his clients do – work that’s been battle tested and refined over the course of hundreds of client engagements.

You will learn:

  • The secrets behind the powerful personal brands of people like Nelson Mandela, Marie Henein, Justin Trudeau – and even Rob Ford
  • The four key elements to include in your personal brand foundation
  • How to bring that foundation to life in a bio and LinkedIn page that stands out from 99% of everyone else
  • That the most crucial thing about personal branding isn’t your foundation, but how you use it.

We’ll also have time for smaller breakout discussions where you can learn to apply these principles to your organization as well as your own career.

In advance of this meeting, you can read more about personal branding examples on Cache, the Coin Blog:
