Mitchell_Levy_100x100.jpg

With each passing day, we are continually expected to be more productive. When we don’t know the answer, we either Google it or go to the person (e.g. the thought leader) we think can give us the answer that’s contextually relevant to our situation.
 
Who do we turn to and why? Whether that person is inside or outside our organization, we expect a truthful answer we can internalize. We expect the person we turn to be authentic, transparent, and trustworthy. We expect our own personal thought leader. Shouldn’t you be that thought leader for someone else?
 
Come hear The AHA Guy Mitchell Levy, a Silicon Valley Thought Leader that’s seen and helped deploy and use technology in corporations for over a quarter of a century.

Key takeaways

Attendees will away with their own "Aha" moments while understanding why personal branding and thought leadership are essential components of today’s workforce and your long-term success.
