Embracing Your Brand, Dr. Melody Cofield, RWN Summit Panel Speaker
Rochester, NY–OCT 26, 2012 — Legacy Women Institute International, a social entrepreneur enterprise dedicated to documenting, branding, and marketing the legacy and leadership of extraordinary women, attended the 2012 Rochester Women’s Network Summit in Rochester, NY.
Dr. Melody Cofield, Executive Director and invited panelist, shared in the discussion on the topic “Embracing Your Brand” at 9:00 AM, Pacific Time, at Nazareth College hosted by the Rochester Women’s Network. This year’s theme is “You Are Your Own Brand”.
“Personal and entrepreneurial branding particularly from the lens of one’s legacy brings enormous focus, clarity, and resourcefulness to the everyday life of an entrepreneur” says Dr. Melody Cofield. “As women entrepreneurs and business leaders, building and keeping your brand relevant and current is essential. Whether you are self-employed, have a job, or are unemployed- personal branding makes a huge difference.”
The panel discussed why embracing your brand is a necessity today. According to the panelists, everyone needs a brand; from individuals to Fortune 500 companies. Your personal and organization’s brand is beyond the logo; it resides within the experiences and perceptions of everyone you interact with daily. During the question and answer panel discussion, learn how to keep your brand fresh while staying true to your core values. Participants learned why it’s important to train your staff to value and reflect your brand message by marketing from the inside out.
