“This book is great. The case studies about personal branding are particularly interesting. Personal branding is exactly what Kate proposes it is – an all-encompassing online/offline/personal and professional package.”
Gareth Cliff – Radio and TV Personality
“Great book, light reading that gave me direction about the most important aspects that encompass the personal branding topic. Prior to reading this book I underestimated the impact that people’s perceptions (of you) have in relation to your personal brand. We live in a world that believes that no matter what you do, good or bad, people will always be judgmental. This of course doesn’t mean that one should have an “I don’t care what they say” attitude but rather to focus on continuously working on nurturing and elevating your personal brand. More importantly, to make a conscientious effort to improve thyself.”
