Forward thinking university students feel the need to learn more about Personal Branding and how it can be harnessed for career success. This was evident from the turnout for my Personal Branding Workshop held earlier today at Capilano University in North Vancouver. The workshop was filled to capacity (35+ people); considering it was scheduled during the lunch hour reiterates the fact that Personal Branding is fast becoming a popular topic in the university arena. How long before it makes our educational curricula?

Teg Brar's Personal Branding Workshop at Capilano University

Personal Branding in my mind is not an option, but essential to a successful career in the 21st century. Throw in economic uncertainty, globalization, fast adoption of the social web and the noise…the need to stand out has never been more urgent!

There were so many interesting and intelligent questions during and after the workshop and I could not have asked for a more enthusiastic group! The 80 minute allotted time was hardly enough to let me scratch the surface of Personal Branding. It’s such a rich subject, so current and relevant for business and professional success!
