Brand Me: Creating a Positive Impact
In the creative sector, there is a significantly high percentage of self-employed freelancers and small businesses. Many people tend to work with people they like, respect and trust yet we don’t always seem to think about how we, as a brand of our services, come over to others.
This short session looks at the importance of thinking about yourself as a major influencer of your brand. Alec McPhedran is an international skills development consultant in the creative sector and is the managing director of Skills Channel TV. Clients include the BBC, itv, BECTU, Nesta, Creative England and the Met Film School.
