Everyone knows that establishing an online brand is a necessity in today’s day and age. But for in-house counsel, posting content and being vulnerable on LinkedIn is uniquely difficult. Common questions arise: What do I talk about? Why would anyone care to read my posts? Wouldn’t my employer get annoyed seeing me engaging on LinkedIn all day? And what’s the benefit of doing so?
Lisa Lang, Brittany Johnson, and Heather Stevenson are in-house counsel and have all successfully built successful online brands. Join us at 12pm ET / 9am PT on Tuesday, October 17, 2023 for the inaugural edition of our IHC Roundtable Series as Lisa, Brittany and Heather will discuss their journey in building online brands.
Moderated by IHC’s CEO, Shai Mehani, Lisa, Brittany, and Heather will answer the following questions:
– What prompted you to embark on this world of personal branding? What was your first post?
– Did you ever want to give up and if not, how did you stick with it?
– Did your employer care? Do they say anything and how do you deal with it?
– What are your goals and why do you continue to post?
– Has your social media influence brought you benefits? If so, what?
– Practical advice for those who want to get started?
