P&M 46: Influence and Personal Brand with Jane Anderson

In the episode of People & Management I get to have a fantastic conversation with communications, branding and influencer expert Jane Anderson.

We chat all things influence! Some of the many key take-aways:

🔹 The work you do on yourself can be challenging at times: that’s why the mindset and doing the work are two essential ingredients.

🔹 Having a mentor is essential – successful people don’t get successful because they did it alone.

🔹 We all have a personal brand, whether we like it or not, even employees, managers and leaders within organisations. When you grasp this, you are then presented with choices.

🔹 Ask yourself: how do you run your meetings, how visible are you, are you being heard by the right people, at the right time, with the right tone?

🔹 Clarity, communication, and control:  clarity is who are we, who are you, where are things at? Communicate, so how do we work together to get that to work and then control is about agreements and trust. 

🔹 Your LinkedIn profile is essential for being an ambassador not simply a recruitment strategy. It can be an attractor to your organisation.

🔹 Don’t poop in public! And here’s the link to the Poo Jogger story! 😳

🔹 KPMG Global CEO Survey of top 10 concerns: brand had never been in the top 16 until last year it was number 3!

Wow, is short of explaining how awesome I find Sally and regard her expertise. Her knowledge, understanding and expertise in training people to be better managers is simply amazing. Having managed people for the many years I found her advice real, easy to implement and has had a massive impact on how I will manage people in the future. Thank you Sally.

Sean Grabbelaar, Retail Manager & Start Up Entrepreneur

It was a pleasure to work with Sally Foley-Lewis on a project where Sally organised over 120 attendees for a training seminar with four speakers. Sally’s approach was professional, supportive, friendly and informative before, during and after the event. Sally ran the seminar and her approach as a MC was of the highest of standards.

Adrienne McLean, Helping Professionals Get More Clients

Sally was the MC and presented at a skills forum where I was also presenting. Sally’s engagement with the participants was a delight to watch and equally to experience. The content of her session was high quality and demanded attention. Her humour and warmth made her presentation very memorable.

Frances Cahill, Elevator Pitch Polisher | Wordsmith

Sally Foley-Lewis coordinated an excellent Resilience, Confidence & Self-Esteem Seminar for a large group of public speakers. I recommend Sally as a leader who is supportive, informative and highly professional.

Charmaine Burke, Training Director, Art of Communicating

I was so pleased and honoured that you accepted our invitation to present as the opening keynote speaker. I knew your presentation would be engaging and thought provoking – but you completely exceeded any expectations with regards to your humour, candid approach and the quality and depth of the information you provided.
