A note from the Founder of Reach Personal Branding.Join our Reach CommunityIt feels great to be a part of a community. We achieve so much more when we’re connected to others.
One of the communities to which I feel most connected is the amazing group of 360Reach Analysts and Reach–certified Personal Branding Strategists. Although the primary reason I started the certification programs over a decade ago was to amplify the visibility and availability of personal branding globally; it’s the opportunity to interact with others who share the Reach personal branding methodology that really revs me up.
When I left my job at IBM – and team of 42 people – to start Reach, I felt lonely. In my IBM role, I was rarely alone. Post-IBM, I felt like I had been placed in solitary confinement. Months of being self-employed (emphasis on SELF), left me longing for a connection to others and for the opportunity to collaborate (collaboration is one of my top five values). So, the Reach certification programs were born.
Today, there are hundreds of 360Reach Analysts and Personal Branding Strategists; they hail from 35 countries around the globe. They’re executive and career coaches, HR leaders, recruiters and consultants. And they provide me, the rest of the Reach team and each other with endless ideas and inspiration – and a tremendous sense of community.
Our certification training consistently receives high marks in participant evaluations; and we’re making it even better! We’re adding some new content, innovative learning techniques and an extra dose of fun!
