Best Motivational Keynote Speakers, Personal Branding Keynote Speech: Why Building A Personal Brand Matters

I truly believe in my heart of hearts this is the best motivational keynote speech about Personal Branding on the entire planet. And I am willing to say it loud and proud. Why? Please see for yourself.

The video below contains a keynote speech I gave awhile back for the good folks at Wescom about why building your personal brand in 2019 matters. Why your online reputation and how that affects your personal and professional life, needs to be something in the foreground of your thoughts as we head into a new decade.

I don’t just give speeches, or present information, I really try to come with a mountain of energy, passion, and vigor with an extra dose of humanness. To me, everything is connected and I never just deliver a one dimensional presentation about a specific topic without the background, context and relatability to your life. This is bigger than just personal branding. This is getting your story out there for the world to better understand you. What could be more important than that?

The full speech in its entirety can be viewed below. Let me know what you think. Leave me a comment. I respond to all of them! Thank you!
