Course overview

Take your career to the next level by leveraging your personal brand

Standing out in the corporate world is about so much more than just your skillset: it's about your personal brand and the ability to communicate it effectively.

In our course, we will be teaching you all of the strategies, tools, tips, and mental models that took our personal brand to the next level over a short period.

You will leave this course with a personal brand statement to introduce yourself to the world, 6-8 subsequent social posts that support your brand identity, and an actionable calendar for growing your personal brand offline and online.

The best part? You'll get to leverage our community to have multiple sets of eyes on your work to feel confident that you are showing up in the right way.

Our course is designed to help you identify your strengths, lean into them, and message them effectively in order to accelerate your career and build your personal brand.

Showing up online, building a personal brand, and advocating for yourself can be intimidating if you don't know where to start. We're here to break down the strategies that gave us the confidence to speak up and accelerate our own careers.

We’ve both seen outsized returns from investing in our personal brands:

When Nathalie became a first-time CEO, her PR team pitched over 50 editors on her new appointment. Guess what? Not a single feature, Nathalie took matters into her own hands, fired her PR team, and instead decided to work on her personal brand, herself. Within 18 months, she was featured in over 40 publications like Vogue, Forbes, Goop, and more. She's become a sought-after thought leader in her field, and she achieved this all by herself, without the help of a PR or branding team.

After being an executive at Snap and Instagram, Meghana decided to launch her own brand as an advisor and consultant. She has built her clientele & following entirely through her personal brand work, and has since been invited to be a paid keynote speaker globally, serve on boards and advisory committees, and featured as an expert in places like the WSJ & BBC.

Through this course, we'll help you develop your own personal brand, message it out, and see tangible career outcomes. Our course will also include techniques for leveraging your personal brand to advance your career, how to use your story to be featured in the media and as a speaker, monetize through other paid services, and how to develop your presence offline and online.

Who is this course for


Mid-career professionals who are searching for a framework for building executive presence and accelerating their career trajectory.


Start-up founders who want to leverage their personal brand to help with fundraising, finding new clients, and appearing in the press.


Professionals who are looking to stand out in a crowded market and leverage their individual expertise to get ahead.

What you’ll get out of this course

Identifying your personal brand.

Creating a personal brand might seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. We'll break it down for you through our proprietary templates & exercises to show you how to identify your strengths and craft your narrative. You will leave with your personal story ready to share.

Communicating your brand.

Once we've crafted your narrative, we'll work with you on actioning it. We'll work through specific strategies for websites, LinkedIn, and social media, along with "offline" strategies for leveraging your brand in the workplace.

Building and monetizing your brand.

Want to be paid for your opinion? Featured in top publications? Invited to speak at industry conferences? We share the strategies that helped us get promotion, brands deals, speaking opportunities, and featured in places like Vogue, Goop, and Forbes.
