Whether you know it or not, the moment you enter a room, people form an opinion about you. Only a fraction of your message is conveyed through the words you choose – what you wear, the energy and enthusiasm you convey, and how you engage others all contribute to the effect of your overall impact. You Are Your Brand workshop will engage artists in a series of innovative exercises designed to help them discover what they project and how others perceive them. With this knowledge artists can create a strategy to effectively present themselves and their work, and move confidently toward achieving their goals.
