19 ways to enhance your personal and professional brand

expert panel

When it comes to brand marketing, elevating your authentic story as an individual is just as important as company branding. For the past decade or longer, the term "brand marketing" has taken on a life of its own. People now realize that it's not just about a material product or service; "brand marketing" is also tied directly to the individual who is trying to launch or further themselves in the marketplace overall, and not just with any particular company affiliation. In an unstable economy with massive layoffs, it's all about the person and the next steps they want to take in life—especially as it relates to their personal passion, mission, and goals. Here, 19 Fast Company Executive Board members each share their advice with individuals who aspire to elevate their personal and professional branding to become a powerful thought leader who creates and delivers highly impactful, memorable presentations through the stories they share with others—during the workday or after hours.

Company bio

Zelis is modernizing the business of healthcare by building something remarkable: a connected platform that bridges gaps in the financial system and aligns interests across healthcare insurers, providers, and consumers. Our platform is transforming the financial experience for more than 700 payers, including the top-5 national health plans, BCBS insurers, regional health plans, TPAs and self-insured employers, and millions of providers and members. We see across the financial experience to identify, optimize, and solve problems holistically with technology built by healthcare experts — driving real, measurable results for our clients. SCAM ALERT: Zelis has been informed that scammers are using our name to scam individuals who believe they are applying for a career opportunity with Zelis. These scammers can be very convincing, going so far as to steal the profile pictures from our actual recruiters from their LinkedIn profiles and using email addresses that contain the word 'Zelis' such as '@zeliscareers' or '@zeliscareerdesk'. These scammers will typically ask you to send money at some point (for equipment, training, uniform) or for your personal information such as social security number or date of birth. A LEGITIMATE ZELIS RECRUITER OR HIRING MANAGER WILL NEVER ASK YOU TO SEND US MONEY. Also, you will never receive a job offer from us if we have not verbally interviewed you.
