The Strategic Creative: Make Magic in Your Career
ProTalk: The Strategic Creative: Make Magic in Your Career, by Nakita Pope
You have a brand whether you are being strategic about it or not. Often we are so focused on branding our clients and their businesses that we don’t take the time to be strategic about our own. In this session, you will learn some key elements to building a personal or business brand as a creative. How you set goals, create a lane for yourself, tell your story, and build community makes you who you are. Whether you are an employee, freelancer, or business owner, having a brand that represents you authentically IS the magic, and it will give you the creative career of your dreams!
