Date and Time: February 27, 2019 1 p.m. ET - 2:15 p.m. ET


Branding is not just for businesses and entrepreneurs! Your own personal brand can help you differentiate yourself in the workplace, and help you effectively manage your career.

Building your brand is a process that involves identifying your unique interests, values, skills and experiences, and making connections to your vision of how you want your career to unfold.

In this webinar, we will explore concrete strategies for how to build your brand and your career through real life case studies, tips, and identifying resources that can help you along the way.

Join Trevor Buttrum, Manager, Career Connections, from the Insurance Institute, for an exploration and examination of your brand and career anchored in:

  • introducing you to the mycareer resources which can help you benchmark where you are and map your next steps on your path in the industry

  • shaping a framework for your continued learning and development that will help you build your talent equity and develop your leadership skills; and

  • making the most of your professional relationships – with employers, colleagues, and other associates – through mentorship, volunteer, and networking opportunities.

Trevor will be joined by Chelsea Smyth, CIP, RIBO, Director, Western & Atlantic Operations, and Brad Neal, BA(Hons), CIP, RIBO, Vice President, Business Development & Strategic Partnerships. They will share valuable insights from their own careers, explore how you can successfully build and leverage your brand, and offer perspective on how students and graduates of the Institute can continue to advance their career.

Who should attend this webinar:
While this webinar is best suited for early-career professionals, there is value for anyone with an interest in better understanding how to build, continually nurture, and leverage their personal brand to help them manage and maximize their career potential.
