 Title and short description on the talk

Personal profile-raising in a pandemic

  • Is it bad taste to self-promote during a pandemic?
  • Is anyone interested in non-coronavirus topics?
  • When is the right time to put myself out there and how do I go about it?

If you are unsure about if, how and when to raise your profile during a pandemic, then this talk is for you.

With many people working from home for an extended period of time – missing out on face-to-face contact and networking – it is important to maintain some form of visibility.

There are opportunities for small businesses to take advantage of, with their greater flexibility and the speed at which they can adapt. But your people have to like, know and trust you to want to work with you.

It is time to stand out from the crowd with a focus on your personal brand and story.

We will look at how you can increase sales through personality, develop greater credibility and build rapport with new and existing clients.

We will also look at how to approach this sensitively and appropriately at this time.

This talk will cover the following:

  • Why now is a good time to raise your profile.
  • Setting yourself apart from bigger competitors.
  • How to focus on your personal brand and story.
  • How to promote sensitively.
  • Tips on stories to share during a pandemic.
  • Q and As.
