The Art of Tactful 
Self-Promotion at Work 

Tactful self-promotion is a critical competency for all leaders, whether you’re:
… a leader wanting to create more visibility for your department and coach your staff;
… interested in expanding your influence and work on your own career mobility;
… in transition, looking for that next opportunity;
… a contractor or consultant looking for work in the gig economy.
Everyone needs to increase their visibility if they want the opportunities, recognition and the rewards that they deserve.
You will learn practical strategies for:

  • Positioning yourself in ways that highlight your value, differentiators and accomplishments

  • Cultivating strategic relationships and expand your network of influence

  • Gaining constructive visibility by leveraging social media, especially with LinkedIn, and building an online platform

  • Promoting your team and your department

This fast-paced, interactive presentation will help even the most reserved to increase their visibility without violating their integrity and values (and without triggering a panic attack!). 

Break-out Session A:  
Shaping Your Personal Brand
Richard Dodson and Nancy Burke
Whether you like the idea of personal branding or not, you already have a brand – it’s your reputation.  You might not know what it is, and it might not be the one you want, but you have one.  The process of defining your brand requires a bit of soul searching, but it’s worth the effort. 
In this breakout session, we will explore some of the questions that go into developing your brand statement:

  • What do you want to be known for?

  • What value do you add for clients and customers?

  • What benefits do your clients/customers/colleagues receive because of what you do?

  • What are your unique gifts and talents?

  • What differentiates you from your peers?

Participants will have a chance to draft and practice a value proposition that can be used for interviews, networking or casual conversations.

Break-out Session B:
LinkedIn Strategies that Will Grow Your Security Business
Carol J. Kaemmerer
LinkedIn is not just for job seekers. A LinkedIn profile is essential for anyone wanting to grow their professional reputation, activities, opportunities and influence. But a poor LinkedIn profile does not serve you well – others seeking your type of expertise may not find you, and those who do find you may not be encouraged to engage with you. As a security professional, it is essential that people view you as trustworthy. You can lay the groundwork for establishing trust through your LinkedIn profile and then proceed to reinforce your credibility and expertise with each interaction. This webinar will show you how.
You will benefit from this seminar by learning:

  • How to be found: the two factors that control where you show up on someone else’s LinkedIn keyword search and how to optimize both factors

  • How to build your “know, like and trust” factor through visual and written aspects of your LinkedIn profile

  • Effective strategies for communicating your expertise

  • Specific strategies you can use to keep yourself “top of mind” with your clients and ideal prospects

  • How to use LinkedIn as a warm communication tool to maintain and enhance your relationship with your clients and prospects
