LinkedIn has been my most active Social Media Platform where I have been receiving the most opportunities.
These opportunities have been work related, freelance gigs and even being invited to being a guest speaker on a Fashion Panel. The thing about LinkedIn is that it works for you, if you put in the work on your end to position yourself as a Leader and an Expert in your respective field.
Imagine my surprise when Sandra Colton- Medici sent me a message inviting me to be a part of her Style Symposium for her College of Style Brand. I have been invited to be a part of events before, but it required me to be there in person which was not an option at the time due to the fact that all the travel and accommodation had to come out of pocket and I was not able to commit. Sandra explained that it was a virtual panel and I would be interviewed on a specific topic that I was passionate about.
Of course the answer was a resounding yes and from there things were off to a great start. The way it worked was that I got to chose a topic that is organic and relatable to me and my topic was “Building a Lifestyle Brand Internationally” since I have a wealth of information on this area and have been running Haute People for 10 years.
Style Symposium By College of Style
The Style Symposium brings together experts from fashion, beauty, and leadership to discuss the impact all three have on business. The event was held inside of the College of Style Facebook Group, and aims to provide helpful tips for small business owners and entrepreneurs to lead with confidence across all platforms by bringing out your authenticity and confidence
The Style Symposium was a great platform for me to speak passionately about the Haute People brand and it presented me with an opportunity to learn about like-minded individuals in the Fashion Industry.
