In this session we will explore means for discovering, defining, embracing and promoting your personal brand.

This session will be rounded out with a rapid-fire brand-storming opportunity for each participant.
Hide it Under a Bushel – Know!
As writers and speakers, we are obligated to be self-promoting. Yet, the mere notion strikes most of us with insecurity and uncertainty. Isn't self-promotion contrary to the Christian character we all strive for? We will discuss the responsibility we have to boldly step into our calling. We need to understand that to shine the light of Christ requires promotion — and obedience. When we shy away from promotion, we are actually hiding our light under a bushel.
