*before the session*: 'The Climb'- a free tool to define your mission and vision. Give this a first try before we head into our session. As a person or as an organisation, we need to know what we want to be recognised for. What is the change that you want to bring, and how will you bring it?

Session Overview

This Virtual Classroom will cover an introduction to branding and how thinking like a brand can help you to increase your impact. Brand thinking is a process that helps you to clearly and compellingly define who you are, what you do and why it matters. It helps you to identify your main audiences, what you want them to think and feel about you, and how you can achieve that. Whether you are an intrapreneur working on your personal profile for the next step in your career, or an entrepreneur working on your organisational brand, you all have to be clear on what you want to be recognised for in order to get the support you need to accomplish your mission for change. Anne’s company the Brandling works with hundreds of changemakers across the world.
