SMBMSP #67 – Personal Branding Balancing Act: A Look Behind The Curtain

Monday*, June 23, 2014 from 8:00 AM10:00 AM

If you want to get an inside look at one of the strongest “personal brands” in our area, what it took to create and now maintain and grow it, then this is a breakfast you will not want to miss.

Paul DeBettignies, aka “Minnesota Headhunter”, is going to show us how starting his blog in 2005 started him down a path of being one of the most recognized recruiters in the Midwest and how he has used his personal brand to strengthen his position in the Recruiter, HR and tech communities.

While Paul gets a media appearance, TV or print, about once a month and rarely has to make a “cold call” there have been speed bumps along the way. He is going to openly share successes and failures, how at times he has felt lost and how being a “regional” player is a blessing and a curse.

Topics will include:

  • Career management 
  • Business development, building a client pipeline
  • Metrics and tools
  • Time management
  • Doing “all of this” as a solo practitioner
  • Balancing the personal brand with having a life

Hopefully we can get Paul to talk a bit about how he is able to do all of this while being a self-described “passive-aggressive introvert”.

This is Paul’s 5th time speaking at SMBMSP and like his previous talks he promise to be highly interactive, casual and a lot of fun.

* Please note: this event is on a Monday.
