Curate your personal brand — Creative Conversations April 2014

According to Forbes Magazine, personal branding is “essential for the advancement of your career and development as a leader.” But what exactly is personal branding? Most of us understand what a brand is and how a brand’s product, messages and culture can influence its success in the market. Coca Cola, Nike and The Red Cross are great examples of how strong branding differentiates one product from another. So, why would branding be relevant for an individual and what does it have to do with a successful career?
