Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2009/01/22 - Libby Gill, an entertainment industry veteran and internationally respected executive coach and brand strategist, will be the keynote speaker at NAWBO’s monthly breakfast meeting in Santa Barbara, CA, on January 28, 2009, at the Canary Hotel.
Gill, who was the branding brain behind the launch of the Dr. Phil Show, spent fifteen years heading public relations and corporate communications at Universal Studios; Sony Pictures Entertainment and Turner Broadcasting.
Described by Good Housekeeping as “Dr. Phil’s secret weapon,” Gill will deliver a keynote called “Capture the Mindshare and Market Share Will Follow: 5 Strategies for Creating a Powerful Personal Brand.” Particularly timely for these challenging times, Gill’s key points are relevant for both entrepreneurs and corporate employees, and include guiding people to:
Stand out from the herd of competitors (internal or external) to keep from losing your job or to increase sales with clients and customers
Create a “sticky” personal branding message that is succinct and memorable and learn to network aggressively – without being aggressive
Use social networking and non-traditional approaches to get your message in front of the right audience for your needs
Gill is a former columnist for the Dallas Morning News as well as an accomplished author. She chronicled her journey of overcoming a family legacy of alcoholism, divorce and mental illness in her bestselling book, Traveling Hopefully: How to Lose Your Family Baggage and Jumpstart Your Life. Her new book You Unstuck will be published this Fall.
Gill has appeared on the Today Show, Dr. Phil, CNN, NPR, Fox News, and the CBS Early Show, and has been quoted in Time Magazine, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, O Magazine and Good Housekeeping. Her clients have included Microsoft, Pfizer, USAA, Lycos, Sprint, Capital One, Cadbury Schweppes and Lockheed Martin.
