In this conversation, I talked with Emily Hyde, Sales Vice President for Advocate about Why It’s Time To Develop Your Personal Brand. This is such an important topic because in my observation many women focus on doing good work but do not spend enough time developing their personal brand and public persona.
We started by talking about what it means to develop a personal brand. From there, Emily shared her thoughts about:
Why you should care about building your personal brand.
How to build an identity and brand that draws people to you and creates reach.
Tips for making your personal brand stand out.
How to connect people to your cause or a vision that you believe in.
Why it is dangerous to leave your career and success in the hands of other people.
Enjoy the interview!
She is Sales Vice President for Advocate. Unlike many salespeople, Emily will show you exactly what you have, what to do with it, and how to do it. She genuinely enjoys learning and sharing new and innovative ways to close the technology gap, and is a natural connector. Her fusion of market knowledge and conversational demeanor enables her to connect with clients and peers at a friendly and familiar level. Emily gives back to the technology community in a serious way, supporting several non-profits in the Atlanta community while also serving the President of Atlanta Technology Professionals (ATP).
