Personal Branding


Position yourself for success in your next presentation with a prepared Speaker Introduction

I’m a stickler for having a “speaker intro” as part of your professional tool kit. This tool is not just reserved for celebrities or professional speakers who get paid for speeches.

Get up. Dress up. Show up.

With current workplace trends in casual dress and working remotely, it’s sometimes difficult to pull yourself together in a more professional way.

Networking and Personal Branding go hand-in-hand

We are fortunate this week to have a guest contributor – my colleague and dear friend, Rahna Barthelmess. Rahna is an expert in branding and personal branding and today’s guest blogger. She and I first met when she was a brand manager at LEGO. We both attended a “Train the Trainer” program for personal branding [read more]

Living your personal brand values

Walking down the hall of one of my client’s corporate offices last week, I saw these six power words artfully displayed in tall, bold letters on a wall. The letters must have been at least 18 inches high and the black printing against the white walls caught my full and undivided attention. The words were: [read more]

Last night 43 women and 1 man gathered at the Trumbull Kitchen  in downtown Hartford CT to discuss the topic of personal branding – what is it, why is it important and how to develop and leverage yours. The event was hosted by an amazing woman by the name of Tricia Brunton who founded The [read more]
