Personal Branding:  Creation and development of your pathway to professional success - Kickstart Scheme

Personal Branding: Creation and development of your pathway to professional success - Kickstart Scheme

@ Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Delivered Online Edinburgh Midlothian EH2 2LE

27th January, 2022 09:30-12:30 Training 125.00-150.00
People buy people – not literally, but when you ‘buy’ someone you like them, value them and trust them and it’s your personal brand that tells them what they get when they ‘buy’ you. This workshop will give you the confidence to be yourself by pinpointing the thing that makes you stand out from the crowd and helps you sell your benefits. You’ll learn about values, what drives you, your character, natural talents and your image – how you behave and how you speak. Most of all you discover how other people see you and how you see yourself and how to use that knowledge to define your career path.

Who should attend
Individuals taking their first steps into the world of work, job changers and those wanting to take control of their careers and carve a defined professional pathway will find this training of particular interest.
