BoardProspects to Host "Self-Marketing in the Digital Age" Panel at FutureM
BoardProspects, the online professional community dedicated to building better boards, today announced the details of its FutureM panel, “Self-Marketing in the Digital Age: Create Your Brand and Expand Your Network.” Mark Rogers, CEO of BoardProspects, will be joined by marketing and networking experts to help attendees take control of their digital footprint and expand their networks to elevate their careers.
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and Instagram are all digital channels that have been capitalized on for the promotion of brands, yet other than LinkedIn, these channels have gone largely untapped for the promotion of individuals. This panel will dive into why individuals shy away from digital networks for self-marketing and how they can actually harness technology effectively to stand out amongst their peers at any level of their career.
“Professionals often find it difficult to connect their online persona to their career in a positive and impactful way,” said Rogers. “It's important to educate yourself and take control of this medium to stay competitive for recruitment and professional development purposes. By navigating the digital landscape and influencing your online reputation, you improve your standing amongst your peers and gain prominence in the eyes of your existing and potential employers.”
