Speaking at Meetup in Dallas in June

I am beyond thrilled to have been invited by industry peer and friend, Rob Garner, to speak at a event in Dallas on 28th June >> sign up here.

Mel Carson Workhacker.orgThe whole idea of these events is to give people a steer and help them with their career aspirations, so I’m delighted to be giving them a talk on personal branding.

Here’s the blurb:

Discoverable, Shareable and Memorable – How People Need to Define and Amplify their Personal Brands to Compete Effectively in the New World of Work

Research from Nielsen says just 15% of people believe what a company has to say about its products and services, while 90% will trust the opinion of a friend, peer or family member.

The explosion in use of digital media has given professionals the opportunity to have their wisdom and experience be discoverable, shareable and memorable like never before. It’s a wonder then that so many people have not grasped this opportunity and insist on having their life’s work generate a mostly mediocre impression on the world.

In this session with Personal Branding Expert, Mel Carson, you’ll:

  • Get an introduction into personal branding and why it’s so important for your career and the success of your company.
  • Learn how to create a personal branding strategy to help your expertise standout in your industry.
  • Understand what you need to do to establish your professional purpose and create a personal branding statement.
  • Receive a whole bunch of tips on how to get the most out of LinkedIn and other social platforms and tools.
  • Learn how to establish a communication cadence and success measurement framework to keep your personal brand on track.

Will I see you in Dallas?

Join Me on a Brandwatch Blab on Social Engagement Next Week


The delightful people at Brandwatch have asked me to join a blab next week entitled: Prioritizing engagement to build better communities on social and I can’t wait!

As digital channels get more cluttered with companies trying to capture the attention of consumers, engagement is a key metric for measuring whether your content is having any effect and helps lead your efforts toward more meaningful dialogue with your target audience.

I’ll be joined by Martin Jones, Alexandra Samuel and Dinah Alobeid so this is going to be a fantastic session expounding a lot of experience and know-how!
