For Day 2 of our Pixelated Conference Series (you can read more about what this is from Chris Brogan, Mitch Joel and Bryan Eisenberg), I thought we’d explore personal branding. While yesterday’s focus on productivity was more of a full-day conference packed with tons of reading recommendations, I thought I’d make today’s sessions shorter…more like a breakfast seminar. I don’t know about everyone else but Tuesdays are meeting day for me so therefore it’s hard for me to dedicate a full day to a conference but I do attend a lot of events/meetings at breakfast and lunch so I thought this might be appropriate.
We start today again with an interesting video to make sure you’re awake. If you’ve never seen this series before, make sure you check out a few of them!
First up is web marketing strategist, Jim Kukral who is going to speak about his thoughts on Tim Russert and personal branding.
Next is personal branding expert, Dan Schawbel who is going to talk about developing your digital personal brand.
For our keynote today, we have the always entertaining Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV who discusses building personal branding through social media as well as what it takes to be successful at developing your brand.
