Taster Session: How to Become the Ultimate Expert

How do you show up for the world? And how do you get the world to take notice in a way that makes you unforgettable and highly sought-after? In an increasingly noisy, crowded, insta-everything era; it’s hard to get noticed even if you’re incredibly talented and accomplished.Personal branding is often touted as the answer when the truth is, we’re confusing the smoke signals for the actual fire. Sure the gift wrapping matters, but not as much as (hello!) the actual GIFT.

THE TAKEAWAYS:

Natasha will share hard-won lessons learned that specifically cater to individuals looking to establish their expertise in emerging/growth markets which typically have different mechanics in play than the West. Attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of the FIVE fundamental elements to becoming an ultimate expert. She will explain how to “crack the code” so that:

- your existing and ideal networks automatically associate you with a key issue/initiative e.g. “gender diversity on corporate boards” and/or one or two key sectors/industries

- you secure the right kind of ROI-driven publicity (whether it’s an online article or a spot on a podcast, all publicity is not equal)

- you attract premium career and business opportunities so that you have your pick (vs. knocking on doors asking people to choose you)

Whether you are:

- just getting started as an entrepreneur, solopreneur, coach, independent consultant

- are figuring out a career change but don’t have a track record in the field you’re looking to move into

- have been in a business for a little while, but have kept your client base small and want to score more, higher-paying clients

- Or, have already established a successful business and are ready to take things to the next level with even more media coverage and visibility opportunities.

If you think becoming a sought-after expert would be valuable for your business and career, join us to learn more!

THE DETAILS:

- Date: Tuesday, 17th September, 2019

- Time: 08:30am - 11:00am (session starts at 9am)

- Location: Rove Downtown, 312 Happiness Street, Zabeel 2, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
