Encouraging Women in IT- Make a Name for Yourself: How to Build Your Influence, Impact and Personal Brand

In today’s digital world, people often begin their search for you before they even meet you. No matter your role, your online reputation matters now more than ever. Research studies consistently reveal that people prefer to do business with, hire, buy from, and work with people they like and trust. Join us for an interactive session led by expert Joyce Layman to learn the following:

1. The Importance of Online Reputation: Understand why your online persona is a cornerstone in building trust and likability, influencing how people perceive you even before a face-to-face encounter.

2. Leveraging Social Media: Discover how to utilize social media platforms not just for networking but as a tool to create a personal brand that connects with your target audience.

3. Brand Monitoring: Learn how to monitor and manage your brand and reputation once established.

4. Using LinkedIn to Build Your Brand at the Event: Learn the must-do steps to build your influence (and grow your network) using the platform.

Participants will receive a brand roadmap with additional insights to develop their unique brand story along with a LinkedIn All-Star Cheat Sheet.
