Course Overview Hi everyone. This is Troy Hunt. And I'm Lars Klint. And welcome to our Play by Play on Crafting a Brand for Growth and Prosperity. I'm an independent speaker and trainer, and I spend a lot of time traveling around the world doing work based on the value of my brand and my identity. And I'm a freelance solution architect at larsklint. com, Microsoft MVP, speaker, and expert in Australian Outback internet. Yes, really! I've been building software systems from tiny websites to gargantuan telecommunication systems for the past 20 years. In this course, we will define what a personal brand is and share some personal experiences. Learn how a personal brand can help excel your profile and get you on the right trajectory in your career. We'll share some of the personal reasons why we choose to invest in our personal brands, and how this helped us grow to where we are today. Learn how to start defining your own brand and how this is an opportunity for you to do more of the things that you're passionate about. We'll explore how the company you work for might perceive your growth, and strategies for having them see it as a strength and a positive influence on the company itself. But that isn't all! You also get first-hand experience on some of the hard lessons we've learned from years of crafting our brands, get insight how to handle abuse, manage family time, fit everything into your already full schedule, and how to say no. That is much harder than you think. To complete the course, all you need is an open mind, a belief in your own abilities, and the next hour to watch this course. I hope you'll join us on this journey to learn how to build your brand successfully with the Crafting a Brand for Growth and Prosperity Play by Play at Pluralsight.
