personal brandingThis week on #SEOTalk we had Shivam Dhawan talking about Personal Branding.

Shivam was earlier featured on Slideshare with his wonderful presentation on Personal Branding and we were lucky to get him talk about his favorite topic on our chat. Well it was indeed a whirlwind of a chat and the hour flew past us pretty quickly.

Key Takeaways from the session

1. Personal branding has been around, but it’s more ‘social’ and ‘mobile’ now

5. You should spend efforts in creating a Personal Brand, it helps while promotions, switching jobs and many other places.
