Selling brand you. This session is about thinking of yourself as a brand and not as an employee. Implicit in a brand is a promise. The promise of what the brand will deliver and how it will make you feel as you use or consume it. In other words a brand appeals to your emotions. You, too, have to appeal to your listener's emotions both in the way you craft your message and deliver it. This session will look at the 5 elements of your brand story and how to deliver it physically and vocally.

Communication is a performance when you are presenting in front of the one, the few or the many and we will look at the 3 principles you need to embrace:
Words alone don't communicate. Facts alone are difficult to remember. Emotion is the key to impact.
