How comfortable and confident are you talking about yourself? Do you have a concise and effective professional bio? Do you know when and how to use it? What do people remember about you and is it what you want them to remember?
Few people honestly have enough personality and self-confidence to deliver a polished personal introduction without any preparation or thought. This presentation gives a simple formula for crafting a personal introduction that hits the mark. You’ll learn the basic building blocks for talking about yourself and your business. And you will see how to practice it so that it fits like an old shoe.
Then you’ll learn the basics of how to incorporate your introduction into your professional bio. It’s a crucial networking and marketing tool, and yet too few really know how to write one (well) and what to do with it.
In this interactive and engaging presentation, Mina will share:
