Polishing Your Personal Brand

Have you ever wondered what Personal Branding is and why it should matter to you? 

Consider this:  How well you do your job and how successful you are in your professional career, is much more than what skills you have and how good you are at what you do.  Come spend an hour learning about the power of your personal brand and the components that help define what it is.  Katie Bianchi, an HR executive with 30 plus years of global experience will help us dissect the three elements of personal branding:  Performance, Image and Exposure (PIE) and provide you with tips on how we can enhance your personal brand.
