Branding Yourself as a Creative by Kelly Porter

Learn to stand out and attract positive attention for your creative business. This workshop serves for all kinds of creatives, including digital content creators, visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, chefs, and even artisan farmers and foodmakers. With the help of Kelly Celeste Porter, an ETSU professor and a proven professional, each participant will begin considering how to develop their own brand, reflecting their very own personality and style. Porter is a popular presenter who makes these sessions both interesting and very useful.

Kelly says, “I’ll be covering a number of important topics: defining your brand, designing your identity, identifying your touch-points with your audience and managing your assets. These strategies will help you differentiate yourself and create value for your customers.”
