"Your Brand is what people say about you when you're not in the room" - Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO

What are people saying about you when you leave the room? I want to work with professional candidates to raise their online brand presence. Only candidates who stand out online are going to be headhunted for exciting roles in the future. We are in a scarce skilled market, so passive talent is constantly being sourced by people studying, and following their online activity.

Online Career Specialist | Personal Branding

  • I want to assist people who want to raise their online digital profiles so they start to get the visibility and recognition that they so richly deserve. It is not always socially acceptable for people to boast about their business achievements, so we need to make sure we do so in a professional, engaging manner.
  • My consulting services will start with LinkedIn training for Professionals, irrespective of the position of the candidate on their career journey. My services will include blogging training and the art of sharing these articles via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. There is no predefined starting point for this training as it is tailored to suit your needs and where you are on your personal branding journey.
  • Is your CV selling your qualifications, experience and achievements effectively? Does your CV match your LinkedIn profile? Did you mention your achievements on your CV? These questions are important when you are looking to change jobs as your CV is the weapon that will get your proverbial 'foot in the door'.
  • Not everyone is a habitual networker. I am not talking about collecting a pocket full of business cards from every conference you attend either. I want to teach people how to make meaningful connections with people in order to grow their 'online' brand in real life too.
