Ability Programme: Personal Brand and Creating your Elevator Pitch

Venue: Online

This event has ended.

Join us to discover how to develop a consistent personal brand and create an elevator pitch that will impress.

Personal branding is about working out who you are and what you offer an employer

Your Personal Brand will help you share your story and build credibility

A dynamic personal brand is something that is a pre-requisite for career success in the modern workplace with people carving out corporate careers and more people becoming businesses of one and choosing portfolio careers as freelancers, or career changers.

Everyone is unique and in a crowded recruitment space, you must be able to communicate your expertise, values, skills and goals or risk fading into the background. This workshop will give you tips on crafting a Personal Brand that will feel polished and authentic for you, helping you raise your professional visibility using LinkedIn.

We will cover:

  • How to put together a strategy to raise your professional visibility
  • What is exactly is a Personal Brand ?
  • How to build your Personal Brand 
    Why personal branding is essential for your career success
  • How to put together a great Elevator Pitch and when to use it
