Build Your Reputation: Grow Your Personal Brand for Career and Business Success

""

Your reputation is what people say about you when you're not there. It's your most powerful asset for business growth, career enhancement and freedom of choice in many aspects of life. Yet too many people leave it to chance. They are a well-kept secret — it's not enough to be the best, you have to be seen to be the best. Build Your Reputation will show how to identify your brand and where it fits into the big picture, and then you'll learn how to become the obvious choice for whatever it is you do.

Learn how to build credibility, connect with the right people and make your achievements known. Attract the right relationships and the right attention. The highest-paid people in any company, industry or profession are not necessarily the most qualified, gifted or best. They're the most popular. They are liked, trusted, recommended, chosen, hired and introduced. Build Your Reputation gives you the inside track to the top, with practical wisdom and strategic advice for building your own brand.

 

“Over 100 practical strategies to get your name out there. Just do 10 per cent of what Rob Brown tells, and in a year’s time your life, reputation and positioning will be completely transformed.”

-- Daniel Barnett, Barrister, Broadcaster and Keynote Speaker
