How to Create, Market and Role Model a Powerful Personal Brand

Personal Branding is a hot topic these days, but do you really know what it means?

 

And do you know how to leverage your personal brand to get the career you really want?

Getting bigger promotions, better clients and a more meaningful career depends largely on how you’re perceived by senior managers, colleagues, peers, and potential clients or employers.
