Come learn to Stand Out, Step Up, Get Noticed
Here how from the Entrepreneur. Visionary. Mentor: Denise Herd
The competition is fierce wherever you are, and whether you like it or not, you are part of it. How do you stand out without alienating others? How do you get taken seriously in a male-dominated room? How do you stand out in a room full of stars and become a big fish in a little pond? In this session, we will learn tips and techniques to help you stand out, step up, take charge and get ahead in your career.
Utilizing decades of experience in marketing, public relations and strategic communication, Herd launched Herd Strategies, a full-service public relations firm, in 2011. Since entering the market, Herd Strategies has developed a reputation for being the go-to firm for companies or individuals looking for innovative marketing, public relations, creative design or community outreach strategies that will separate them from the competition and yield a strong return on investment.
