Professional Development Presentation - 6:00-7:00pm
Strategic Marketing Skills for Professionals
There are so many things we need to focus on at work every day, managing projects, people and information, but what about taking the time to manage our own career?
What we hear the most is:
"I focused so hard on being a top contributor:”
- I didn’t put in the time to get known inside or outside the organization nor did our executive management team notice me. AND
- I failed to build the essential strategic relationships that could help me transition to employment quickly once I lost my job.
Attendees of this presentation can expect to walk away with the strategic marketing skills essential for one’s own career both internal and external to the organization. Professionals-in-transition can expect to learn strategic marketing skills that can significantly shorten their transition time.
By end of this presentation, learners should be able to:
- Leverage advanced features of professional networking tools – suchas LinkedIn – to engage and connect with industry leaders
- Develop a strategic plan for one’s own career
- Engage in an environmental scan leveraging tools and methods such as SWOT and Competitive Research to help with brand differentiation
One "Quiz” Question
What is the best way to find out how long you’ll be unemployed if you lose your job?
- Competitive Analysis – know the competition
- Your Personal Brand – what are you known for
- Strategic Relationships – who do you know
- All of the above
Answer: All of the above
