Netherlands - Personal Branding and Business Image

  • Nokia Hoofddorp office 1 Antareslaan Hoofddorp, NH, 2132 JE Netherlands (map)

Invitation: Personal Branding and Business Image

A strong personal brand opens new professional opportunities, helps you profile yourself in terms of your skills and makes you stand out in the competitive landscape when searching for a new job or potential new customers. The digital presence of your personal brand is becoming more and more important: whether it is LinkedIn or your website, the content already tells your story. However, continuing the story in face-to-face meetings is equally important and both of these aspects are a great impact throughout your career.

On Wednesday 18th of April, FDCC will organize a special event focusing on Personal Branding and Business Image. At the event you will have the opportunity to listen to the inspiring speaker, international brand advisor Michiel Maandag (Monday Brand Advisory) on how to brand yourself, and to hear practical advice from image consultant Jenni Ryynänen (I on Image) on how to support your personal brand with a unique style that is remembered for the right reasons. Lastly, what could be a better way to brand yourself and get noticed than with a flattering and professional picture on your CV and LinkedIn profile? Our professional photographer Jenna Rutanen will be taking care of that. 

Please note: Due to the scheduling, pre-registration for the photo shoot is required. We advise you to come early enough to avoid possible queues and we can start the program on time. The photo is available for an extra cost and should be paid together with the registration fee.

Jenni Ryynänen is a Finnish image consultant at I on Image, based in Amsterdam. Style is a powerful, yet often overlooked, tool for making positive first impressions on- and offline. A well planned wardrobe brings you clarity and confidence, and it helps you to concentrate on things that are important to you by minimizing the amount of decisions you need to take on a daily basic.  She helps you to discover and unleash your own unique style that is remembered for the right reasons. For her it has never really been about individual trends that change every season but about building a sustainable individual style that tells your story. She is passionate about business wear, first impressions (live and on social medial) and wants to help you to be at your very best in the current competitive business environment. Read more:
