March Professional Development Event

Outbranding: Building a Winning Personal Brand in 2021

A strong personal brand should be constantly evolving, especially given last year’s tidal waves. Join us to learn how to refresh yours!

About this Event

How you appear online has become more important than ever–especially in the last year as almost every interaction has been through a video call, social media engagement, or some form of digital communication.

These days, almost all of how you present yourself online relies on a strong, personal brand that translates just as well digitally as it does in person–and that’s precisely what Ebony R. Lincoln, MBA will shed valuable light on.

You’ll learn:

  • How to properly identify your personal brand
  • How to build your online presence – where can we build trust and add value?
  • How to activate and integrate a working strategy that’ll stick

In an effort to continue to provide quality, engaging virtual professional development programming each month, our member rate for monthly events is increasing to $5.
