In association with SCOR

We often talk about the power and perception connected with a personal brand, but what does it take to really hone in on your own? What are the key aspects to consider?

The event began with a presentation from Karen Graves, Head of Operations EMEA Hub & Group BCM, SCOR and Independent Non-Executive Director, USAA UK, on the importance of personal branding. Karen discussed her career to date, experiences advice and personal anecdotes with questions from the audience throughout the evening.

By the end of this event members would have gained an insight into:

  • The importance and power of personal brand
  • The experience and expertise of a senior leader
  • How you can feel comfortable to bring your 'whole self' to work
  • How to be effective and influential in the way you communicate and interact with others

The evening wrapped up with a networking drinks reception, kindly hosted by SCOR.
