Training Session #4 with Jill Adams: 14 December, from 9h30 to 13h00

Learn how to define your Personal Leadership Branding

Every young entrepreneur acknowledges the importance of a good sales pitch to attract the attention of investors, customers and business partners.  But when it comes to finding their own elevator pitch and exploring their Personal Leadership Branding, business leaders often overlook these aspects. Do you know what you stand for? And which values guide you as a leader? These questions can be challenging, but if you know the answer, you can stand-out in the room and during your leadership actions. 

The EIC Women Leadership Programme’s Training #4 on “Improve your personal Leadership and Branding skills” will explore the importance of developing your own authentic leadership brand and presence in critical situations. You will receive a framework and process to develop your unique leadership style, as well as techniques on how to communicate effectively and consistently and on how to stand out from the crowd.


Register here (registrations are open until 10 December).
