Communicating Your Personal Brand

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a Millennial, it’s never too late—or early—to build and develop your personal brand.

Join us on March 28 from 12-1:30 p.m. when we welcome local business leader, entrepreneur and active community volunteer Patty Briguglio who’ll share with us the importance of building, maintaining and communicating a personal brand. She offers stories and anecdotes that demonstrate the advantages of building and cultivating a personal brand regardless of one’s stage in life.

Be fearless. Inspire. Develop. Connect. She’ll speak with us about how any generation can use these five powerful words in their successful branding efforts. She’ll also talk with us about how these values and attributes got her started her on the path to professional and personal accomplishment and subsequently led her on a rich and rewarding communications career she never imagined. While Patty’s focus is on Millenials, she offers insight which all will enjoy, and from which all can learn.

It’s these five inspiring words that have been instrumental in her success as a former CEO of MMI Public Relations, which she sold in 2012; a recognized expert in the public relations industry; a widely quoted business person who’s appeared on the front page of The New York Times (with President Barack Obama), CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and FOX Business Network; and a sought after community leader.
