Session I: 10:00 – 11:00 am
Whether you are trying to ace a job interview, sign a new client or promote your business, it is critical to sell yourself. Often times, professionals fall into the trap of regurgitating bullets about their past jobs instead of sharing the value you they can offer as a result of their experiences. Bringing together a diverse group of powerhouse women, this interactive session will share best practices and lessons learned from experts around branding and selling yourself professionally. From portraying a physical presence to speaking the language, attendees will walk away armed with the ability to position your value…not just your resume.
