You’re One Story Away From Reaching the Top (being Ceo of Your Own Brand): How To Tell Your Personal Brand Story

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Today, everything and everyone is a brand. People in business and careers recognize they have to work on their brand but seldom know how to achieve it. Just becoming known or gathering social media followers is not enough. Standing for something is everything. And a personal brand not only provides a competitive advantage but adds a premium to your value.

    How to build a personal brand through the use of story. It’s an overview of Henry’s best practices and allows the audience to work through the steps together.

    Henry Wong’s talk will help unlock each attendee’s desired brand and unique position using his process to work through assessing oneself, determining key personal brand elements and expressing one’s brand through the use of story. Henry will help identify their superpower, unlock their brand personality, shape a brand narrative, and provide thoughts on rebranding and the power of making emotional connections. Taking it further, he shows how to apply the brand in all parts of one’s business career from networking to social media.

    Ideal for entrepreneurs, small businesses, founders, and sales organizations but this has resonated with groups and conferences that focus on personal development.

    This keynote centres on the principles of storytelling that are used in creating successful product campaigns. With 30 seconds to 60 seconds to get an idea across in a compelling way, and a call to action, it’s the perfect structure that entrepreneurs and business leaders can use.

    Your brand vs. your company brand

    A variation of this keynote is available for employee groups. What happens when your brand doesn’t align with your company’s brand? Henry shares his unique approach and methods in forming a personal brand against the backdrop of the organization’s brand. We may be the company we keep but for many, there is a disconnect of who we are authentically versus who we become for the company we work. Henry Wong’s talk will help team members reconcile the two in forming their personal brands, discuss how organizations need to rethink how they hire, answer what to do when personal beliefs and public (online) presence affects an organization’s reputation.
