Personal Branding for CEOs

Personal PR for CEOs

In today’s digital world, business leaders are expected to be visible. They are the human face of the business. Clients, investors, employees and journalists want to know their direction, their opinions, what they are doing about ESG, their position on diversity, and their entrepreneurial advice.

Traditional PR is no longer enough to earn trust and recognition for a brand. A CEO is expected to have a strong personal brand themselves. They need to be seen as a visionary leader.

Below are examples of two CEOs for whom we have developed thought leadership and our results.
