Personal Brand

Your personal brand is one of the most valuable assets in your control. It will help you establish credibility and trust with colleagues and clients alike, and enable you to enhance your career. No matter what your objectives are, a strong personal brand can heavily influence you achieving your goals.

The evolution of technology has allowed us to connect with more people, more of the time. Therefore, greater importance must be placed on how we use the online tools at our disposal and how we can have a positive impact communicating in the virtual world.

In this webinar, St. James’s Place engagement managers, Carole Stubbs and Toby Coen will go into detail around how to develop your personal brand with conviction and purpose. They will intertwine this with how to network effectively online whether your goal is to open doors to new career opportunities or simply expand your network.

The St. James’s Place Academy has helped launch 39 new financial advisory businesses since lockdown commenced in March. A key component of the Academy training is focused on how to support new advisers to develop their personal brand and be impactful in virtual networking to expand their clientele. They will be sharing their experience first-hand on how this is implemented.
