Conference call is Q & A format where Bernadette is interviewed about her book “Storytelling about Your Brand Online & Offline” addressing these key questions:

• Why are stories so powerful?
• What is Personal Branding?
• How do you fuse Personal Branding and Storytelling to message your professional brand?
• How does storytelling factor into the personal branding process?
• What is digital or 2.0 storytelling?
• Why is your LinkedIn profile so important?
• What do you say in the SUMMARY area of your LinkedIn profile?
• What are some tips to get the online and offline “story” about our personal brand in front of our target?

For many individuals (maybe you) your LinkedIn profile is your professional “window to the world”. It is key to consider what your target will find when they land there. Ideally, a good story or BIO that messages your brand. The SUMMARY is the place to tell this story. What to say? How to write it? Learn tips on how to craft your BIO and where to use the storied content you develop for a multitude of purposes.

In advance of the webinar discover your digital ID, baseline or another term used….your GQ (Google Quotient). Take a few minutes and fill in some statistics here where you can find out if you are DIGITALLY DISASTROUS, DIGITALLY DISTINCT, DIGITALLLY DISSED or DIGITALLY DABBLING.
Also, identify where your LinkedIn profile appears on your search results.
