Professional development seminar: ‘Personal Branding for Change Agents’ 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17

Young Nonprofit Professionals Network - Twin Cities

In the new world of work where job titles and descriptions don’t define or confine you, it’s not enough to mean well. You have to be noticed, both in person and on the web.

Having a clear idea of who you are and what you care about, then representing yourself consistently online, will help advance your career and build your network. Not only that, it will give the causes you advocate for a shot in the arm, too.

Join Young Nonprofit Professionals Network-Twin Cities (YNPN-TC) on Monday, Oct. 17, for The Insider: Stand Up, Speak Out — Personal Branding for Change Agents, an evening of honing your online identity with our four expert speakers.

Stand Up, Speak Out

Attendees will leave this professional development seminar with:

– A better understanding of how to relate one’s personal story and key messages
– Tips on writing compelling web copy
– Visual branding insights to stand out from the crowd
– An overview of how to use Twitter to develop a brand and connect with new people and fresh ideas
