This November I’ll be hosting free 1-1 workshops at two leading impact events. Read on and join me for one or both!

Start the month off right: Be Bold at the 2016 BSR Conference in New York, November 1st-3rd. I’ll be at the yearly sustainable business gathering as a participant and speaker. My workshop, Personal Branding for Sustainability Influence, on Wednesday, November 2nd will teach you how to design your own personal marketing and pitch statements. In addition you will come away from this workshop with an understanding of what a personal brand actually is, three authentic personal marketing messages, and a better articulation of who you are and why your work matters.
