What does Personal Branding mean to Millennials?
If you’re wondering what Personal Branding is – or what it means to you, your job or your business – you’re reading the right blog post.
I will be moderating a panel discussion on Millennials at the Discover Your Personal Brand Conference, being hosted in Toronto on Saturday, August 15 (with an opening panel on the Friday evening).
The panelists include the always awesome Gwen Elliot, Matt Tod, Kal Mokhtarzada, Anita Wing Lee and Hamza Khan.
From a Media Strategist for startups to a Training & Development Director at a charity, we’ll cover a few different perspectives and tips for millennials and those working with us millennials (born between the early 80’s and the early 2000’s).
Why this stuff important anyway? Companies and organizations aren’t alone in the need for solid branding, Jayson Demers explains:
“Personal branding, the art of building a unique brand around yourself as an individual, is just as important. Just as so with a traditional brand, personal branding requires you to find a signature image, a unique voice, and a recognizable standard that your readers, fans, and customers can grow to recognize. Personal branding is becoming increasingly important because modern audiences tend to trust people more than corporations.”
Canada’s Biggest Personal Branding Conference is for a huge range of people:
- Have you ever felt ‘lost’ as a leader?
- Are you trying to find a corporate career path that makes sense for you?
- Are you an entrepreneur who is looking to find your voice?
- Are you a student who wants to make sure you have chosen the right academic path?

There are a total of 50 speakers and panelists, so even if this isn’t your topic, I hope to see you there anyway!
