It’s impossible not to. The reason why is simple. Every action you take or word you speak creates your brand one willful choice at a time.Brands are the product of our actions. You behave your way to a brand. The strength or the weakness of your brand is on you!
So, how do you “own your brand?” We will have guest speaker Mike Wagner, founder of White Rabbit, preparing you with actionable guidance on what you can start doing and saying from now on to grow a great professional
