Professional Development | Personal Brand Overhaul: Redefine the Way you’re Perceived at Work  
presented by: Kristi Turner, Compeat CMO
Room #

Everyone has a certain reputation (or “brand”) that they’re known for in the workplace, but for most people, that brand has been created by default, rather than by intentional design. The people you work with have built up their own perceptions, opinions, and judgments about who you are, what you’re good at—and possibly even what you’re not good at. They have “branded” you in their own minds. Have you allowed others to define your reputation? If so, you have the ability to re-brand yourself. Compeat CMO Kristi Turner will teach you how to re-assess your brand –in person, online and when sending emails –  and adjust your communication to that you can attract high-profile projects and solidify your reputation as a leader.

We are often the first one in and the last one out of the office, always wondering “how can I improve the business?”  Compeat CFO will present three major issues that keep restaurant CFO’s up at night and some solutions to help you get some well deserved zzz’s.
