Boston, Wednesday, October 20th , 2010 8:30-5:30

Personal leadership branding is the positioning strategy behind the world’s most successful people. It’s therefore important to be your own brand and to become the CEO of your life. Everyone has a personal brand but most people are not aware of this and do not manage this strategically, consistently, and effectively. You should take control of your brand and the message it sends and affect how others perceive you. With an authentic personal brand, your strongest characteristics, attributes, and values can separate you from the crowd. Without this, you look just like everyone else. By way of this unique workshop, Dr. Hubert Rampersad will offer you an advanced breakthrough formula and a new blueprint to build, implement, and cultivate an authentic, distinctive, and powerful personal brand, which forms the key to enduring personal success. Building an authentic personal brand is an evolutionary and organic process and a journey towards a successful life. Your personal brand should emerge from your search for your identity and meaning in life, and it is about getting very clear on what you want, fixing it in your mind, giving it all your positive energy, doing what you love and develop yourself continuously. This workshop provides you a holistic and complete branding framework that will help you to create a powerful, authentic, and memorable personal brand identity that builds a trusted image of yourself and will help you enrich your relationships with others, master yourself, unlock your potential, develop self-esteem, and create work-life balance. By aligning your personal brand with yourself you will also create a stable basis for your trustworthiness, credibility, and personal charisma. By aligning your personal brand with your corporate brand you will create a passionate and happy workforce (employee engagement). This workshop is an experience that will enhance the core of your personal leadership brand. This program is geared toward executives and professionals who wishes to differentiate themselves, set themselves apart from others, position themselves strongly in relation to competitors, and build credibility and a solid reputation in a sustainable way. You will learn how to build and cultivate an authentic personal leadership brand, how to build a strong reputation that is aligned with your dreams and passion, and how to manage yourself as business effectively based on the personal balanced scorecard…..


Praise for his book Authentic Personal Branding:

From the book’s foreword by Marshall Goldsmith:

“In Personal Branding, Hubert Rampersad has provided a sorely needed guidebook for knowledge workers. He shows us all how to build our own personal brand – and just as important – how to persuasively communicate this brand to the world… I love his focus on authenticity… My request to you, the reader, is – make this book part of your life.  Don’t just read this book for its ‘interesting’ content.  Don’t be content with a few ‘aha’ moments. Make it part of your life planning – and ultimately part of your life!  If you do, you can become a more integrated and successful person – and better enable your company to help you make a positive difference in our world!”

From the Afterword by Dave Ulrich:

“Hubert Rampersad has a knack for preparing comprehensive frameworks for analyzing important issues… The four stage model that he suggests proposes an explicit way to turn a desired external identity into something concrete and actionable… It’s a wonderful step by step approach to making out desired brand explicit… The mental models and their related investigative questions will help you know where you are today so you can get to where you want to be tomorrow… This book offers an architecture to turn these ideas into action.”
