WORKSHOP : Personal Branding & Storytelling

Marseille Event completed

KEDGE is pleased to invite you to a face to face workshop given by Katia Blanc, about: "Personal Branding & Storytelling".


Personal Branding : Identify your beliefs, find your DNA, clarify your goals, to work on your personal brand, embody it, define your positioning and communication strategy . Do you really know what Personal Branding is?

For some, it means the reputation of a person on social networks, for others it is «marketing» to show oneself in its best light. Actually, it is more than that.

Personal branding is a process that requires authenticity and sincerity: working on your personal brand is first of all about questioning or re-questioning who you are, what your talents are, what your uniqueness is, so as your DNA. It starts with an “introspection” step. This is the key prerequisite to establish your positioning, define your communication strategy and implement it in your real AND digital life. We are all concerned and have an interest in working our personal brand, becoming aware of our talents, knowing how to talk about ourself, enhancing our visibility to stand out and get noticed.

With social networks and their explosion, this is all the most important: how to set ourselves apart from the crowd, how to make a difference by using these new media, places of visibility and influence, recruitment, business, information?

Personal Branding will allow you to:

  • Position yourself in your environment, talk about yourself & get people to talk about you
  • Reveal your personality, your added value and what makes you stand out
  • Cultivate your brand, with meaning and authenticity,
  • Implement your global, public and digital communication strategy!
  • Take control of your outreach and e-outreach.
