You are Your Brand: Personal Branding to Drive Growth

Saturday, Sept. 7– 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm (Mark Carr, MBA)

Twenty years ago, in an article called “The Brand Called You,” Tom Peters popularized the term “personal branding.” In the article, Peters argues that today’s workers should use corporate branding principles to create their own personal brands, separate from their employer, to advance their careers. “You’re not defined by your job title and you’re not confined by your job description,” Peters wrote. “Starting today you are a brand.” Branding is about becoming more thoughtful and purposeful in the qualities you convey through all mediums – in-person and online. Although Peters writes about the corporate world, the principles he espouses have been – and continue to be – applied by successful professionals to build, strengthen or even re-position reputations and careers. In this session, we will use branding principles to spark new ideas for new strategies to enhance and improve our personal brands. 

• Review core branding principles and learn how to they can be used to create, strengthen or re-invent a personal brand.
• Listen to panelists of your peers share stories of how they built their own brands.
• Discuss activities to uncover your unique strengths, skills and talents as well as strategies and techniques to build your brand offline and online.

Team Decision Making

Sunday, Sept. 8 – 8:30 am - Noon (Lakshmi Balachandra, MBA, PhD)

One of the key components to the healthy functioning of a group is the ability to come to equitable and efficient decisions. While decision-making research has predominately focused on the tendency of individuals to form opinions based on bias, reason, emotion, and experience. group decision-making may or may not be governed by these same core principles of rational decision-making. In this session, explore key considerations for individual decision-making and how these factors influence team decision-making.
