    1. April Chamber Lunch Exchange – Simply British @ Wildwood County Resort
      11:30 am – 1:00 pm

      A brand is anything—a symbol, design, name, sound, reputation, emotion, employees, tone, and much more—that separates one thing from another. Branding on a business-level is common, but today branding is becoming just as important on a personal level. After all, you might work in a business to business climate, but it’s the personal interaction that you have that makes business relationships valuable. After all, people don’t want to do business with businesses, they want to do business with people.

      Your personal brand is your statement, your image, what differentiates YOU from you others in your market. It’s important to be yourself, but to be the best version of yourself, to project the message that you want others to receive. Having an impeccable personal brand can lead to powerful relationships and powerful deals.

      Join us on April 8 as we welcome the dynamic duo of Ken and Caroline Davidson of Simply British, The Finishing School. Simply British is a full service concierge that specializes in Image branding and consolation, protocol of social and business etiquette, and leadership development and motivational teaching.
