(3) Communicating your brand


“If you’re not appearing, you’re disappearing,” said legendary jazz musician, Art Blakey.

Absolutely true. No matter what your “thing” is –  engineer, marketing exec, or French Literature professor, whatever! –  standing on the merits of your great work alone is not (usually) enough.

  • People have got to know about you and your great work. 
  • They have got to meet you, see you.
  • If you want people to talk about the wonderful things you do, then you must give them the opportunity to experience you.
  • This means attending networking meetings (both social and professional) and getting involved in external organizations in your field.
  • But do not limit your involvement only to organizations in your direct field.

Some of the best contacts may come from quite unexpected places, but you will never know unless you get out there and mix it up.

Here’s a partial list of what personal branding can do for you:
