First impressions matter! 

A great introduction can be a powerful door opener to new opportunities. But there's only a tiny window to turn your introduction into career or business gold. In today’s reality, you have a better shot of engaging with a goldfish than the person next to you.

Everyone knows we only get one shot to make the right first impression. But few are really prepared to answer, “What do you do?”

In this course, you learn how to create an engaging personal brand introduction in 20 words or less, and make a lasting, positive impression.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize what makes an effective person brand introduction.
  • Identify key concepts to develop your introduction and personal brand statement.
  • Discover 5 ways to say who you are and what you do in 20 words or less.
  • Explore 3 ways to turn your personal brand into a memorable introduction.

The instructor was easy to listen to, concise and had very relevant examples. This course can help anyone who needs to "sell" themselves internally or externally and can help people who want to be able to make positive impressions on others.

Although this course is short, it is excellent. Miss Okamoto gives fine tips on formulating a personal brand. Her delivery was passionate and very interesting. I am looking forward to more courses from her.

Overall a positive take-away from this class. Unsure if possible but it would have been helpful (at least for me) to have a bit more time focused on the student's headline.
