Event Details

This event is over, but the recording and podcast for this webinar are available for download from Sensible Media's download store.

John Purkiss, headhunter and co-author of Brand You explains in this webinar how to harness your brand to create new opportunities.

This webinar is co-produced by INSEAD Alumni Career Service and Sensible Media Ltd.

Clarifying what you are “about” can be hard work. But reminding yourself what you love doing is often exciting and energising. Where though should this energy be directed?

Taking action has a cost in terms of time. Social media can create amazing opportunities but can also devour every free minute in your schedule.

Addressed thoughtfully however, action to further your personal brand does not require sacrificing evenings and weekends. In this webinar John Purkiss describes a model which relies on refining what you already do before, if you wish, evaluating whether you need to be more proactive.  

In this webinar we address:

  • How to ensure your CV is distinctive and aligned with your brand
  • How to use personal stories to communicate key points
  • An exercise to ensure your day-to-day behaviour is helping and undermining your brand
  • how presence – which you can work to develop – is more important than “charisma"
  • A checklist for online brand health.
  • When and why you should invest in your personal branding (eg set up a personal website for instance)
  • A straightforward roadmap for extending and communicating your brand through traditional and social media

We will also discuss:

  • The importance of "findability"
  • The power and risks of cooperation and co-branding.
  • Some ideas for making new authentic personal connections
