Living in Glasgow or Edinburgh you should get to the Edinburgh New Media Breakfast

How you get your brand across online without the aid of your voice and body language
What do people say about you when you’re not in the room? Whatever it is, that’s your personal brand – and it’s the key to your success.

Because in a world where ‘people buy people’ your personal brand helps them decide whether or not they’re buying into you (and thanks to Google and all things online, that can happen before they’ve even met you). Spark’s Jennifer Holloway will be sharing her insights on personal brand – what it is, how it’s formed, how to define it and how to promote it – to help you tap into one of the most powerful career and business tools you have at your disposal.

In a similar blog post prior to hearing Jennifer's presentation I suggested that your personal branding is critical to the success of your social media; having heard her presentation I believe this more than ever.   Jennifer's particular presenting style is entertaining, interactive and informative, I don't think there were many people in the 100+ audience who did not enthuse about her and what she had to say. If you need any more convincing please go to Twitter and search #NMBrek, you will soon see what I mean.

I don't think there will be many people who were in attendance who haven't made changes to their online profiles following her presentation.

As a little taster, go to Jennifer's recent blog post and Test Your Personal Brand Here 

With a career including 15 years in media relations and PR, Jennifer Holloway knows a thing or two about promoting a personal brand – she did it every time she picked up the phone to a journalist. The result? She stood out from the ‘press office crowd’ and got her stories on the front page. Today, she is a personal brand expert, helping executives to define their personal brand before teaching them how to promote that in everything they say and do.  Known as ‘The Antidote to Yes-Men’ her honest, challenging and practical style has helped leaders discover how, by being themselves, they can be even more successful.
