  2. 2. "Regardless of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me Inc.

If you CAN’T then all the advertising, fancy packaging, sales promotion and public relations in the world won’t help you achieve your objective.” Al Ries and Laura Ries "World Class Brands” in Executive Excellence, March 1999
  4. 4. “ Branding is the hottest concept in marketing today, and it’s an idea that is not just for the deep-pocketed, highly glossed Coca-Colas and Nikes of the world.

  5. 5. "Your personal brand is a promise to your clients... a promise of quality, consistency, competency, and reliability." Jason Hartman

  7. 7. "In fact, in these times of economic uncertainty, a solid CEO Brand is, perhaps, more important than ever." AdWeek

  12. 12. "It's clear that today's celebrities are becoming Brands unto themselves. But now even middle managers can get into the act. So if you see your VP of finance in the gossip pages next to J. Lo, don't be surprised." Fortune

When you create a compelling brand you attract people who want the promise of your brand – which you deliver." Dave Buck
