I presented this deck as part of a talk at TLDC18 in Phoenix. My experience in “personal branding” was very organic. I had no choice but to brand myself after working for the DoD and being restricted in what I could share. I started in 2012 and because of intentional personal branding, have risen to a point where I am at least considered an “experienced veteran” in my field.
I attribute much of my recent success to the amazing connections I’ve made through my membership with my peer group in TLDC.
