We are glad to inform, that during the 5th edition of the European Young Engineers Conference Participants will be able to attend in one chosen workshop from the listed below:

1. “How to create your personal brand” conducted by Monika Bębnowska (MB Konsulting)


A brand is anything—a symbol, design, sound, reputation, emotion… And when it is a name, your name, it will be your ‘personal brand’. It refers to the way other people see you as a business owner or a business partner or representative of an idea or a project. Are you a genius? An expert? Are you trustworthy? What do you represent? What do you stand for? What ideas and notions pop up as soon as someone hears your name?

When you have a personal brand, people recognize and care about your name, what you’re working on, what you offer, and what you’re about. This workshop will help give you the tools to build your personal brand.

We will discuss:

– why should you build your personal brand,

– how to create your personal vision,

– how to define your target audience,

– how to build up your social graph.

We will work in groups and individually, analyze case studies and brain storm. Bring some markers, curiosity and engagement.

Remember, Be Yourself Because Everyone Else Is Taken. See you on the workshop!
