FIR on Higher Education #19 – Dorie Clark on Building a Personal Brand
Probably most all of us want to innovate, grow and develop in different ways throughout our careers. On episode 19 of FIR on Higher Education, I discuss this topic with Dorie Clark, author of Reinventing You, an executive education instructor and a former presidential campaign spokeswoman. Dorie shares the following:
• How academics can build their individual brand and how this leads to new opportunities.
• The new realities of book publishing.
• Keys to developing a content strategy.
Remember the infamous “Dean Scream” – when Presidential candidate Howard Dean yelled too loudly in the microphone and it didn’t make him look so good? I asked Dorie about what to do when things don’t come out as intended based on her experiences working as a spokeswoman for Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign. Dorie offers advice on what we can do if our messaging goes off the rails.
