Presentation about personal branding, including tips for developing brand values and an elevator pitch. Also covers ways of utilising social media to express your personal brand.

Presentation abstract and details:
Many librarians use social media to market our libraries, but what about marketing ourselves as librarians? As we make the necessary shift from marketing our products to marketing our services, it becomes increasingly important to market ourselves and our skills, both to our current and potential library users and as a way of establishing ourselves within the profession. This session will introduce the value of having a personal brand, and discuss ways of utilising social media to express your brand.

The session will begin with an introduction to marketing and a discussion about why librarians need to market themselves (and who to). Each participant will then identify their strengths, and develop a personal 30 second elevator pitch before we move on to consider elements of each person’s individual brand. The session will conclude with tips and advice to bring it all together and to help convey your personal brand through social media.
