Personal Branding

I see personal branding as a three layered circle. At the core is what makes you who you are, your unique brilliance. The next layer contains all the ways you reflect that brilliance to the world. This includes your personal style, your people skills, your online presence, even the networks that you build. The third layer is how others see you. What do they say when you’re not in the room?

The world’s top leaders and most influential people understand the power of personal branding and leverage it to move people and create great change. I can help you understand and harness this power for yourself.

People Skills & Nonverbal Communication

One of the most important parts of building a strong personal brand is learning to master nonverbal communication and people skills. If you want to build more meaningful relationships and influence others, you have to understand the role psychology and human behavior play in your daily life. As a certified body language trainer with the Science of People, I take you through the latest research on human behavior, psychology, and relations to build your influence and increase your impact.

Your Online Presence

In our “always on” world, chances are, your first interaction with someone will be online, and you probably won’t even know it. And just like meeting someone in-person, the person you just “met” online, will form a perception of you.

For them, this perception will shape the way they feel about you, what they think and say about you, and will determine if they’ll make an effort to engage with you further.

Is your brand ready for this type of meeting? For most people, it’s not.

That’s where I come in. I not only help you improve your in-person communications but also help you establish a strong online presence that will support your authentic personal brand.

My Back Story

I started my career as a Multimedia Designer in the Corporate Affairs department of one of the world’s leading chip-making manufacturers in Silicon Valley. There, I learned the ins and outs of effective communications and the value and importance of brand building. I loved my job and had high hopes of moving up in the ranks.

But then…. in 2001, I was laid off. Whoa! Didn’t expect that one! I was devastated, but I took it as a sign for me to nurture an internal desire to do more mission-driven work. I started working part-time for a local non-profit where I taught young women leadership and technology skills. I absolutely loved it! This inspired me to begin offering my tech skills as a consultant for non-profits.

Fast-forward several years later and I’ve built a career supporting non-profits with the leadership, strategic planning, design, and technology skills I’ve developed.

Two recently projects include NSF-funded, Tools for Change: A Project for Boosting the Retention of Women in the Academic STEM Pipeline (www.toolsforchangeinstem.org) and Women’s Leadership Edge (www.womensleadershipedge.org), an online community for advancing women in leadership roles offered through the Center for WorkLife Law at UC Hastings College of the Law.
