Wednesday, March 17, 7:30 p.m.: Everyone can be Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, but what about the rest of the year? Do you have an identity that says who you are, what you stand for and what skills you have to offer? Personal branding introduces you and sets the tone. Whether you work as a freelancer or an in-house editor or writer, it’s important to identify your skills and show those who make decisions the work you are capable of doing.
Speaker Stephen Goban, a founding member of The Centre for Excellence in Communications (www.comcec.com), will help us identify our personal brand.
The Centre for Excellence in Communications delivers a wide range of communications courses, and offers solutions to communication, marketing and media challenges. Stephen is an experienced communications professional who has also designed and delivered courses and workshops. He is co-author of Canadian Business Writing: A Structural Approach (2nd Edition, Thomson Nelson, Toronto).
Come and learn how to harness your personal style to communicate your abilities. And don’t forget to wear your green. We’ll have a draw and will celebrate more than just the luck of the Irish!
