Building your professional brand

Professional branding is a concept unfamiliar to many doctors. Yet all doctors have a professional brand, whether they know it or not. 

Our programs are designed to equip you with the skills and tools needed to build a strong professional brand at any stage of your career, so you can develop, progress, and achieve your professional goals.

We offer three professional branding programs designed to support doctors at different stages of their professional branding journey: 

What is your professional brand? » 

 
  • It is what people hear about you from others, it’s what they say about you after they have meet you
  • It’s the perception you create, it’s the impact you have
  • It’s the key words that are used to describe you based on - what you say, how you say it, your actions, your behaviour, your appearance, your tone, your body language and how all of this together makes people feel.
     

Why is building your professional brand important? » 

 
  • Your brand informs your reputation and is the foundation from which you build a successful career. 
  • It can influence the opportunities and connections that do or don’t come your way and ultimately your career trajectory. 
  • Your brand should be congruent with your personal values, your mission and your message.

Developing your professional brand is a conscious process and one we encourage doctors to engage in. It will support you in knowing how you want to present yourself, your values, your expertise, your ‘why’ and to communicate this succinctly and with confidence to your target audience. 
 

 

Programs available:

  • Our style coach knows that style is incredibly personal, and no two people are the same. We want to honour this by taking time to really understand who you are – your lifestyle, life and career stage, tastes, preferences, likes and dislikes – to articulate a style that is truly you.
  • In the consult we will look at some items in your wardrobe you’re currently wearing for work and discuss whether these are reflective of your professional brand goals. This will also help determine any gaps you need to shop for.
  • After this session, you will receive a Personal Style Guide summarising the key points of the consultation including your style goals and aesthetic, wardrobe gaps and style tips to elevate your professional look. We will then reconnect a month or so later to do a follow up session with you.
