What is self-branding, and why do you need it?

We are all storytellers, but are you telling your story correctly? In a time where we are all in the public eye, it’s important to promote ourselves consistently, accurately and with relevance. Learn how to sell yourself as well as your work with integrity and longevity.

  • What is self-branding?
  • What’s the difference between selling yourself and selling your work?
  • Why people buy people, and why scriptwriters and creatives need a brand/point of differentiation
  • Dropping the fear of self-promotion
  • How to remain private while building your brand

Who should attend?

Scriptwriters, of course, but also authors, illustrators, directors, and anyone else who knows how to tell a story but doesn’t realise they must also be telling their own story at all times.
