Female Leadership Network - May 2021


FLN Session:  Wednesday, 5 May 2021
Building personal brand, a network of advocates and your own board of directors.
Loction:  Life Saving Victroia - 200 The Boulevard Port Melbourne 
Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Session Overview :

This session will entail key information about personal brand, and the significant impact this can have on how others perceive you and your ability to build connections. We will hear from a highly accomplished panel about their journey in lifesaving and the tools and strategies they have used to connect and navigate their way through the various roles that they have held. We would learn about what it means to have supporters and a network or advocates and how this is different from a Board of Directors.

The session will conclude with a workshop connecting you to likeminded people, either through various roles/responsibilities, or perceived challenges or opportunities/vision.
