GoogleAbility™-building your personal brand online
This one-day masterclass, presented by international brand leadership expert, Dr Nikolaus Eberl (co-founder of the FAN World Cup and regularly featured on CNBC) will teach you how to build your personal brand online and become an internationally recognised thought leader.
To be successful today, you must have a clear and compelling online identity. People are Googling you and making decisions about you from what Google reveals. Whether you are an employee looking to advance in your company, a professional seeking your next marketing role, or a consultant looking to land your ideal client, you should plan on being Googled. And you should prepare for it.
Being Googled is the new version of the reference check. It provides your colleagues, employees, managers, clients, hiring managers and executive recruiters with critical information about you. Consider this:
- A Harris Interactive poll revealed that 85% of respondents Google people to learn about them.
- According to Business Week, 87% of headhunters use Google and social networks to make decisions about candidates and 75% of recruiters have eliminated candidates based on what Google revealed
- Accenture included the total number of relevant Google results as one of three measures they used to develop their list of the Top 50 Business Gurus.
Clearly, people are making decisions about you based on what they find online. Your Google results may be the determining factor in whether an executive recruiter calls you in for an interview, your manager decides to promote you or a prospective client chooses to work with you. It's no longer a luxury, it's a requirement for you to build and continuously manage your on-line identity.
