This is a taster webinar session for a new series of personal branding events for job-seekers, career professionals and business owners.

Why you should attend:

* Recruiters estimate that a mid-level professional job vacancy demands a human capital investment of c.£0.5m over a typical 3-year job tenure. As employers seek to automate processes, it has never been more important to stand out through the management and projection of your personal brand.

* If you are running your own business, potential clients and business partners will Google you. Effective personal branding is the difference between winning custom and losing it.

* The new LinkedIn user interface, rolled out widely in early 2017, is a game-changer in terms of populating your profile and engaging with the platform. Learn quickly what to do and how.

* The session will include special access to a variety of personal branding and networking resources, allowing you to measure and track the effectiveness of your LinkedIn profile post-event.

Hear what previous participants have said about Darryl's session:

"Many thanks for the session. I found it very useful and, judging by the high attendance and the big round of applause you received afterwards, I am sure I was not the only one who truly enjoyed the event. The tips you provided were eye-opening. I have already created a list of additional actions to improve my LinkedIn profile. Seems like I have a busy weekend ahead!" - Delegate

"It's funny because I spent all summer looking for jobs (as you know!) and then two pop up in the same week! I just wanted to say thank you again for your continued help and support!" - Delegate

"Darryl provided me with extremely insightful and valuable advice on the importance of networking. From my experience, his expertise and passion are unparalleled. These qualities made liaising with Darryl an absolute pleasure. He provided me with a great deal to consider and his LinkedIn group "Strategic Business Networking" is a brilliant group that promotes and shares such ideas among like-minded individuals. I would recommend him thoroughly to anybody." - Delegate
