Speaker – Lisa Cherry on Understanding Your Business Story: What Makes You Special
In May 2009 everything changed for Lisa Cherry and by February 2010, while standing on the cliff edge with a manager that was annoying her deeply, an hour’s commute and two children to manage, the mileage, the holidays, the salary and the sick pay were rejected for a life of poverty, uncertainty and…..excitement!
Lisa takes you on the journey of understanding yourself so you can understand your business ….and relish the learning and the growing on offer if you’ll accept it.
So You Think You’re An Expert?
In this talk Lisa will talk you through:
- What makes you special?
- How you can convey your message
- Develop brand ‘You’
- Expertising yourself and why it is essential for a thriving business
