The discussion this week is based on the Zoom conference we held a couple of weeks ago. Years ago, well-known author and management guru, Tom Peters wrote an article for Fast Company titled: A Brand Called You (Links to an external site.) https://www.fastcompany.com/28905/brand-called-you Links to an external site..

LinkedIn is one of the best social platforms for personal branding, connecting and sharing, and is regarded as the network for professionals.
