Program Overview

“In the business people with expertise, experience and evidence will make more profitable decisions than people with instinct, intuition and imagination.” ― Amit Kalantri ―

Are you known for something of value or are you a victim of others branding you? Would you rather be a leader than a doer; a professional rather than a young inexperienced graduate; or a manager rather than a mere executive?

Whether that is obtaining a new job, earning a promotion and/or freelancing. The goal is to focus on professional development topics so that you feel confident marketing skills as you enter the workforce and have concrete materials that will make you stand out to employers.

It’s never too soon to plan your professional path by learning how the best to create your own success!

If you are aiming high, but not spending adequate time on personal branding, you will surely miss the target. Do not miss good opportunities or allow others to beat you in the competition!
