Workshops and Speaking Engagements

I love working with people and sharing my knowledge with them. I'm also one of those rare people who enjoy public speaking, so over the years I have found many opportunities to share my take on personal branding with anyone willing to sit still for a couple of minutes.

I already have a few speaking engagements and workshops planned for 2022, but I'm always open to more of them - if you have a willing audience and need someone to create or deliver a workshop for them, feel free to get in touch!

LinkedIn 1-2-1 Reviews

Due to the popularity of the 2019 series, in 2021 I launched a second series where I expanded capacity by training members of the IBM CareerCorner community in my personal LinkedIn review system; jointly we provided over 50 reviews to IBMers all over the world to excellent feedback. To maximize the impact of this series, we kicked off with a lecture by Grace Jansen and capped off with a 90 minute open Q&A session.


During each private session we reviewed their LinkedIn profile with them, helped them improve it on the spot and came up with an action plan for further improvements; we also provided articles and tips to support them in this process.

Careers Academy 2020: Building Your Personal Brand

I fully believe personal branding is the most effective strategy you can use to achieve professional success and fulfilment.


At IBM Careers Academy 2020 I was able to share what personal branding is with over 90 young professionals, teaching them how to identify, develop and communicate their personal brands, and helping them do this through practical exercises.

Originally planned as a face to face event, we were able to pivot it in less than a week to an online event to put IBMers safety first, whilst still delivering amazing content!

Personal Branding Online Workshop

At IBM's Foundation Females Christmas Workshop 2019 I delivered a short presentation on developing your brand online, with a focus on how to increase LinkedIn visibility, followed by LinkedIn 1-2-1 reviews for the attendees. I trained several Early Professional Managers on how to conduct these reviews and of course did several myself, helping the participants identify improvements and steps to take their LinkedIn profiles to the next level.

Personal Branding: a winning job-search strategy

 

On 11 December 2014 I gave my first lecture on personal branding as a job-search (and career) strategy, at the University of La Rioja. It was an enriching experience I look forward to repeating. 

You can watch part of my lecture here (Spanish with English subtitles), and you can now see below the English version of the presentation I used in the lecture to obtain a global vision of personal branding as a basic element of the job-search.
