Let's Nail Your
This course is for ambitious people who are ready to take their career to the next level. How? By establishing their identity, their Personal Brand.
Ever notice how some people introduce themselves with confidence? Wouldn’t you love to be that person who knows exactly what to say, whether it’s in a meeting, during small talk at a cocktail party, or when you're "on stage"?
YOU can be that person.
In this course, you will:
- Learn the "strategic principles" of Personal Branding (context, definitions, and examples - what you need to know!)
- Be guided step-by-step through a sequence of critical inputs to your Personal Brand.
- Learn to articulate the things that make you unique - your superpowers.
- BONUS: You will learn a framework to introduce yourself in any context.
- ...and more!
Your Instructor: Dr. Andrea Wojnicki
Communication coach Dr. Andrea Wojnicki earned her Doctorate from Harvard Business School, where her dissertation focused on consumer psychology and interpersonal communication. (She's still obsessed with understanding why you said whatever you just said!)
Andrea created Talk About Talk as a learning platform to help ambitious executives catapult their careers by improving their communication skills.
Over her career, Andrea served on the faculty at the University of Toronto where she taught MBA students, she authored several academic papers and HBS cases, and she worked as a brand manager at Kraft. Recently through Talk About Talk, Andrea has been coaching executives all over the world on topics such as personal branding, overcoming imposter syndrome, networking, listening, storytelling, and demonstrating leadership.
This PERSONAL BRANDING course sits squarely at the intersection of Andrea's expertise: strategic branding, social psychology, and interpersonal communication.
“Previously I had a hard time finding my authentic voice. Developing my Personal Brand with Andrea has been transformational. We went deep, into the early experiences that shaped me, my values, what I will fight for, what I am against. The exercises were imaginative and fun but also highly effective! The process Andrea created unlocked my confidence to share who I am, what I care about and how I can help clients. I highly recommend Andrea for anyone who wants to nail their personal brand and learn how to communicate it to the world.”
Lindsey, agency partner & entrepreneur
“Andrea's Personal Branding content is incredibly empowering, teaching you to identify and embrace your uniqueness whilst learning how to harness these attributes as your own personal super power. The stuff they don't teach you as you're climbing up the corporate ladder. Andrea is highly motivating and engaging.”
Lorna, global chief of staff, big 4 audit firm
“Andrea, thank you for a terrific job. Your “super powers" are your honesty, mindfulness and caring to learning. This was one of the best learning sessions our team has ever had.”
Marc, president, research firm

FAQs - Frequently Asked Qs
Q: How long does the course take? Are there set dates & times for this course?
A: This course is SELF-PACED and you can access it for one year from the date you register for the course. So you can start whenever you like and run through the curriculum as quickly or as slowly as you like.
Each "Step" should take you 1-2 hours of focused time to complete. That includes watching the video, writing, thinking, and taking the quiz. Of course, you can always spend more time on each step, and you can even go back and repeat a step.
Looking for more guidance in terms of timing? We suggest you take 2-7 days for each of the five steps, to truly internalize each of the inputs to your Personal Brand. So that’s a total of between 10 days up to 6 weeks. Again - it’s up to you!
Q: Why should I focus on my Personal Brand?
A: People with a strong personal identity feel an elevated sense of confidence in everything they do, from day-to-day interactions to important presentations.
