ProDev Presents: Own Your Brand | A Panel Discussion on social media

We’ve all heard those words: “Personal and/or Professional Brand”. Separately, these words may not mean much, but when combined they stir up a pretty powerful sentiment. But what really is a personal and/or professional brand and how do we create one? Well, we've been wondering the same and thought it was time to get some answers... 

For the maiden event of our newly launched YPOS professional development speaker series, the YPOS ProDev team will be bringing in the city’s experts to speak with us about becoming masters of our own personal and professional brands. 

Our first ProDev speaker event, Own Your Brand, is completely devoted to bringing you two things: 
1.) Experienced insight into developing your personal and professional brand; 

2.) A dynamic conversation on how you can use social media to get your distinct message across. 

Wondering how these ProDev events will be structured? In classic YPOS style: a relaxed setting and, of course, no name tags!  Each ProDev event will feature a 30 to 45 minute panel discussion book-ended by some networking and a little Q & A. These are early morning events, so instead of networking over appetizers and drinks, our sponsor, Seattle Espresso will be bringing in pastries and coffee! 

Seating is limited so get your tickets now before we sell out!
