Week 4: Developing my personal brand


Welcome to Week 4 of the course.

Last week you learned more about what personal branding is, looking at how a personal brand can be used in the workplace and considering some celebrity case studies, both good and bad.

This week, you’ll concentrate on defining the various elements of your own brand, understanding what you want it to achieve and exploring the key attributes you want to promote to others.
