Academic Branding: Improving Your Visibility, Network, and Career Opportunities
July 26 @ 16:00 - 17:00
Academic Branding is a new approach to articulating your unique expertise and purposefully managing the way you are perceived in face-to-face and virtual encounters. Branding puts you in the driver’s seat, allowing you to tell the story you want to tell about yourself, your scholarship, and your leadership.
An academic brand incorporates your clear and cohesive brand statement, visual images, online presence, and interpersonal interactions. A well-crafted brand consistently differentiates you as a thought leader and highlights your contributions through both traditional media and online platforms. Branding can increase the visibility and impact of your work, grow and cultivate your academic support network, and generate new career opportunities both within the academy and beyond.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- What academic branding is (and isn’t).
- How academic branding can help your career.
- The components of an academic brand.
- The phases of the Academic Branding Cycle.
- How to get started with your academic brand.
