Keynote: Growing Your Influence Upstream and Downstream
Facilitated by Jackson Hataway
      Pre-approved for 1.0 general credit hours.

Get ready to develop a personal brand! That's right. While credit unions and businesses may have marketers or agencies develop a brand, individuals can have brands as well. The difference between the two is that a corporate brand is carefully measured and managed, where often individual's brands may be left hanging in the wind to manage themselves. Skillful leaders in organizations of all types and sizes understand the value of deliberately building a personal brand – and leadership studies continually validate this mentality. Personal brands help identify leaders among peers, allowing an individual to be become a communication hub in business and to grow their influence both upstream and downstream from where they are now. Take a look at what it takes to develop a personal brand and learn what a valuable asset it is. This high-energy and high-impact session will use national examples and provide tools and best practices from companies like Microsoft and Adobe. This session will challenge participants to take control of their personal brand and become drivers of growth in their organizations.
