Designing and marketing a brand can make or break the success of a company and their products. It truly is a big deal.

Join us for an engaging session with Sarah Soliman, President and CEO of Soliman Productions, Inc. on personal branding and getting the business of YOU front and center in today’s highly competitive market.

Don’t miss this session which will help you rethink personal branding and what it says about you - and your relevance to those who are looking to work with you.
