    The Art of Hello: Professional Branding. Be Remembered in a Noisy World

    Presentations, workshops, conferences and keynote addresses

    As professionals we all deserve to be known for our achievements, and to be understood for our value proposition. Often called personal branding, the core is introducing yourself to people in a way that the listener understands the essence of your professional life. Once scripted and perfected, your branded introduction is a durable asset. It will serve as your networking introduction, as your LinkedIn profile summary, the opening to your bio, as the professional summary of your resume, and for internal meetings with new partners or executives. It is useful for emerging professionals, for senior leaders, for business owners, for those seeking positions on boards, and job seekers.

    A well-conceived professional brand introduction is the old-fashioned elevator pitch polished up to a professional level with a memorable impact. It differentiates you from others. So simple to recognize when done well, and so hard to make one your own. Paula provides a three-step method and a set of frameworks that results in you having a professional brand introduction of your own to use, that day.
