The Brand Within: Branding Yourself from Birth to the Boardroom

When William Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage”, he was indirectly talking about branding! This informative keynote is like nothing else on the market. Sure, there are other speakers that may explain how to market and brand a product, but how many explain, step-by-step, how to brand yourself and transfer that power into your job, company or product? Did you realize that you’re a brand? According to The Shark, you were branded the day you were born and continuously every second since!

In this keynote, The Shark, Daymond John, gives audience members in-depth insight into how your personal brand affects all aspects of your life. Not only will attendees learn the importance of branding, Daymond will reveal some of the tricks that helped him expand his brand into dozens of countries around the globe. The techniques shared can be applied to personal branding as well as to the branding of products and concepts.

Corporations love employees with a strong sense of branding because it inspires out-of-the-box thinking, creating an infectious energy that flows throughout the work environment.

It’s no secret that the world has gotten smaller. Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Foursquare, and dozens of other social websites have increased the desire for people to be noticed as a brand, let The Shark, Daymond John, show you how.

Goals and Motivation - The Daymond Story

In this keynote, presented in his charismatic style, The Shark, Daymond John, takes audience members on an inspiring, emotional rollercoaster ride. They’ll hear, first-hand, how a man, with no formal business training whatsoever, went from driving cabs and waiting tables at Red Lobster to creating a global fashion empire with retail sales exceeding four billion dollars to date, and a starring role on ABC’s hit reality business show, Shark Tank. Daymond entertains and awes audience members with true-life tales of his incredible successes and numerous failures. Equally important, however, he motivates, inspires, and teaches them how to set and go after their own goals with newfound focus and determination.

Audience members will be galvanized as they realize they have been setting goals for themselves all of their lives – whether they realized it or not! What’s more, to their surprise, many attendees will learn that the goals they have been setting have been self-destructive.

Unlike some “motivational speakers”, rather than spitting-out tiresome “I can make it, so can you” clichés, Daymond shares the exact goal-setting strategies that he attributes to his success and teaches audience members how to incorporate them into their endeavors. This keynote will challenge attendees to exercise their brains in a way that cultivates a positive, goal-setting mindset.

Fostering Creativity

Creativity and innovative thinking are defining characteristics of successful entrepreneurs. Now more than ever, however, corporate leaders are recognizing that entrepreneurial thinking isn’t just for entrepreneurs. Creativity, resourcefulness, and the ability to think outside the proverbial box are skills that are just as valuable in large corporations as they are in start-ups. Thus, many of America’s leading companies are turning to entrepreneurs for their insight. In this keynote, Daymond John uses personal examples from his phenomenally successful rags-to-riches journey to explain how he honed his entrepreneurial mindset. More important, John teaches audience members how to this mindset, which includes what he calls the “Power of Broke” thinking, to achieve their goals and objectives — inside or outside a corporation.
