Lunch N'Learn-Managing and Maximizing Your Personal Brand


San Antonio Area Foundation, 303 Pearl Parkway, Suite 114, 78215


Wednesday, August 30, 2017


11:30 AM - 1:00 PM


Join us at this lunch n'learn where individual professionals will assess how they are currently showing-up to their stakeholders, whether or not that matches how they’d like to be perceived and valued, and what to do to fast track getting their personal brand on the right track.


As any startup founder, nonprofit CEO or professional fundraiser will tell you, investors and major donors don’t make large contributions to companies and organizations. They contribute to individual leaders at the helm of those enterprises in whom they have confidence and who exhibit that special spark of ingenuity and drive. The same is also true of staff working with external customers, community partners and public/policy leaders. How you show-up to the people and influencers in your landscape, your personal brand, is a significant factor in your present day professional success and can be a determining factor in your future career advancement prospects.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn about basic elements that define your personal brand, reputation and perceived value
  • Assess your own personal brand to learn how to be more effective in aligning it with your values
  • Gain a better understanding of how to project and refine your  personal brand

This course is ideal for professionals and entrepreneurs in all sectors who want to become more effective in building confidence in their personal value proposition and leadership potential. Both new and experienced leaders looking for a fresh perspective on how to raise their profile to garner stakeholder support and strengthen advancement opportunities will want to take advantage of this course. 

Cost:  $30.00  A light lunch will be provided
