As neurological research confirms, storytelling is a powerful communicative tool. In her new book, ‘Storytelling about Your Brand Online & Offline, Personal Branding Strategist, Bernadette Martin demonstrates how stories can transform corporate images and professionals' careers.
With this book, professionals and executives of all types, entrepreneurs, consultants, musicians, academics and students will undergo a "personal branding process." They will uncover, clarify and communicate what makes them unique. They will understand their own attributes, strengths, values and passions to craft the stories that give new life to their careers.
Beginning with crafting the BIO, a "must have" in your Brand Tool Kit, readers will develop essential components to integrate into their verbal, written and visual messaging, and build their personal "brands." Included in the book are over 50 BIO references, 15 interviews with authors, thought leaders and recruiters, three exemplary case studies, a BIO "makeover" and a multitude of BIO "Gems" (excerpts that create memorable, captivating touch points that make you come "alive").
The following questions will be answered in the book:
- What is the difference between a BIO and a RESUME?
- How do I develop storied content to write my BIO?
- What are the essential elements in the Career Personal Brand Tool Kit?
- What can a BRANDED BIO do for my career?
- Where can I get the most impact with my BRANDED BIO online and offline?
