Better Than Average: On Becoming a Thought Leader

Thursday, May 26, 2016 | 2:20 PM - 3:20 PM | Back Bay C

Betsy Blakney
Have you ever wondered how some of our peers became thought leaders? You can become one, too, by managing your brand and becoming a visible expert℠. We’ll define what ‘thought leadership’ is; describe the steps to take to increase visibility, credibility, and influence, while examining tips and tools to help you find your voice and build a following. With the right mindset, skillset and network, you can be sought after for your knowledge and wisdom, just like the professionals profiled ─ some well-known experts in business development, others quietly becoming industry stars.
