Writing and Building Your Personal Brand

In this workshop, we'll help you understand what a personal brand is and dispel the myth that you don’t have one or don’t need one. You’ll learn that your writing —even if you don’t consider yourself "a writer"— is a critical part of your personal brand. And you’ll learn how to become more aware of your audience and how they perceive you. In this interactive session, participants will learn:

  • What personal brand is and why it matters
  • How writing impacts your personal brand
  • How to conduct a personal brand audit of the places your writing lives online
