Follow up on personal branding presentation

Thank you to everyone who attended the IABC Phoenix luncheon today to hear me speak about personal branding.  It was fun to present and I hope you had fun participating. Great questions!

Unfortunately we ran out of time- great questions and dialogue about social media, branding, and how to approach people for testimonials. The final point of my presentation was cut short, so I thought I’d share it with you now.  As I emphasized in the presentation, it’s important to be visible in the community.  A great way to do this is to be a professional volunteer for a nonprofit organization or charitable cause.  Here are some points I didn’t get to about being a volunteer:

  • Serve on charitable event planning committee
  • Pick a nonprofit you like and reach out to them (NPO’s usually have high profile Boards)
  • Great networking
  • Gets your name out there
  • Don’t be a lazy volunteer – it does more harm than help to your personal brand
