Re-brand. Be you.
Can you think of something more misunderstood and vague?
Most folks don’t have a brand or have lived enough mistakes or under pressure enough to know themselves or what they’re made of. Well, that’s until they meet someone like Dr. Natalia Wiechowski. She’s been through not just a career transformation, but the sort of transformation that people who use that catchphrase would mean.
With over 14+ years of experience in human behavior and social relationships, made the German Dr. of Philosophy and Social scientist come to the conclusion that personal branding is a prerequisite to design a dream life(style) and career of purpose. As a storyteller Dr. Natalia scored two viral posts on LinkedIn in 2016, which allowed her to build an international online community of over 150,000 followers. Her work was also featured in LinkedIn’s #InItTogether campaign in 2018. No wonder why people call her the Middle East's leading Edutainer.
