Creating, Managing and Protecting Your Personal Brand
Whether you know it or not, you have a personal brand formed in large part by your online actions and by the online actions of others. Unfortunately, what you and others post online, text, and even email is not limited to private networks and friend groups. Rather, there's a good chance that it’s all searchable, and archived… forever! In this eye-opening session, Sam Richteran internationally recognized technology, sales and marketing expert, will discuss—what is your "personal brand," why do you have one, how to enhance and protect it, and how personal brands dramatically impact your career, company brand, and reputation. 

Sam Richter's experience includes building innovative technology, sales, and marketing programs for start-up companies and some of the world's most famous brands. He has considerable experience in the housing industry, including creating marketing programs for luxury apartment complexes, builders associations, and training some of the nation’s premier design/build/engineering firms.
