Maybe you’re thinking it’s time to branch out on your own, maybe it’s time to move up in your company, or maybe it’s time for something different. No matter which scenario, for someone to hire you or your company, you must be THE solution that fills a NEED. Clearing your vision of who you are and defining your brand allows you laser focus to attract customers. More than your technical resume or CV, the how and what makes you unique.
In this session, attendees will learn:
- How to gain customers by attracting them to you
- How to identify who your customer is (and is not)
- How to identify the keys that distinguish you from others
- How to decide whether to strike out on your own and what it takes to do it
- How to pitch without bragging
- How to create a customer profile
- How to develop a self-inventory
- How to come up with a concrete, shareable plan
In this session we will cover all of the above through exercises to create a foundation for action. Plan your path to independence, to promotion, or to a new field. Come prepared to roll up your sleeves, dig in, and take action. Ask questions about your individual goals and situations.
This session will provide a forum for you to get the answers you seek!
