Event Description:

Join the GFW Inc. Women's Network for "Branding Boldly: Scaling Your Power of Authenticity", an interactive luncheon that will feature connection time, workshop-style learning, speed networking, and door prize giveaways!

Building off of the last Women's Network event focused on relational capital and social equity, this luncheon will dig deeper and provide the tools to level up your brand. Led by Britney Breidenstein, this session will walk you through practical and engaging ways to align the authentic power of YOU. We will explore some common myths of digital branding across social media platforms such as LinkedIn, while rewriting the stories we often tell ourselves. By the end of this event, we hope you will leave with the courage to scale your presence through intentional relationship building on and off screen (formerly known as networking).
