Teg Brar is a mentor in the Leaders of Tomorrow program through the International Board of Trade and is a speaker who talks about the importance of Personal Branding in today’s online society. We hosted him through CUBES and as part of the Business Week through Capilano University.
Teg talked about the importance of Personal Branding and how to give yourself a better online presence. Q: Have you ever Googled yourself? Go do it, right now. My name, Dana Skonberg, is quite original so all that comes up is about me. One of my classmates, Julian Bell, shares his name with a famous poet and a couple of other people. He doesn’t even show until about 6th place down the page. Teg talked about ways to make your name be #1 on that list, through the importance as blogs such as this one. Each one of us are in charge of our own personal presence. Knowing where we are listed online and what we can do to make ourselves #1 are key to creating our own personal brand.
