Today’s challenging market demands more from businesses. Whether you are operating on an individual or team level, you need to define WHO you are in business if you want to stand out, be noticed, resonate with your chosen audience and create loyal customers. In service-based industries, the meaningful point of difference almost always has to do with PEOPLE.

Have Julissa speak at your next conference, event or training and benefit from tips and insights into effective strategies to implement for building a successful company brand. Beforehand Julissa will meet with key stakeholders to gain a detailed understanding of your business, your industry context and the challenges you may be facing. Julissa’s key message is around the importance of creating a brand that focuses on being ‘human’ and highlighting your people as your real point of difference in the market.

REPRESENTING YOUR PERSONAL BRAND: Personal brand clarity and confidence

In order to be visible and influential, you need to bring who you are to work: to clarify the value you bring and why people would choose to work with YOU. You need a keen awareness of how your face-to-face and online communications either build up or tear down your personal brand.

In this high-energy presentation, you will discover why a personal brand matters in today’s workplace, begin to explore and develop your own personal brand and learn how to step up in your profession through clear and consistent communication of your value. Through examples, discussion and activities, as well as individual attention and time to explore, you will walk away with a sense of your own personal brand CONFIDENCE, CLARITY and POWER. 

USING LINKEDIN STRATEGICALLY: It’s not just about your profile page

LinkedIn is well-known as a powerful platform for building business relationships, and most people recognize it isn’t just for job seekers. But most people also still think, ‘I’m on there… so what?’ For the few who have learned to use it in a strategic way, LinkedIn can build entire businesses.

A ‘LinkedIn Influencer’, Julissa’s point of difference as a presenter is that she sees LinkedIn as a tool to be used as part of your personal brand strategy. Instead of taking you through a boring step-by- step on what the buttons do, she will show you how to construct a head-turning bio that truly positions you how you want to be seen, how to set up your LinkedIn profile effectively to achieve your particular goals, and how to use LinkedIn’s tools in a targeted, methodical way to build relationships that will assist you in your professional role.

NETWORKING STRATEGY: How a professional like you should network!

Many professionals avoid networking because they find it uncomfortable, ‘forced’ and a waste of time. Yet, many of us are aware that we could potentially get more out of networking – after all, it’s a common tool in business and career growth.

Managing Director of New Work Consulting Julissa Shrewsbury has used networking to build her consulting business as well as help many clients to plan a focused networking strategy to achieve their own business or career goals. Her approach to networking is the polar opposite of the traditional approach – it’s not about working the room, it’s not about attending everything and it’s not about having coffees with everyone you meet. It’s about being strategic, selective, and ‘on-brand’ with who you are as a professional.
