Discover Your Personal Brand | skillUP with Digital Agency CEO Carrianne Polo

We're excited to welcome back one of Hartford's top Marketing leaders, Carrianne Polo as our May skillUP speaker. Carrianne will be hosting the UP community to teach us about Personal Branding on 5/23 in her Hartford office. You don't want to miss this one!

Carrianne is the founder and CEO of New Park Creative, a 100% woman-owned digital marketing agency providing branding, creative services, and marketing strategy for 11 years running!

With her expertise in branding, the idea was hatched to share the best of those principles with YOU, and run a session on personal branding. Personal branding is so vital to standing out as a candidate... and also as an employee or business owner in the workplace. We can all benefit from asking ourselves the questions that will lead us to our personal brand -- the special combination of skills, purpose, voice, and values we WANT to project and be known for. Being able to quickly share your unique identity and skills as a job seeker will help the right opportunity find you.

In addition to helping you stand out from the pack, personal branding can help you get clarity on what you really want. This can help you evaluate opportunities and how well aligned they are to your go-forward.

In addition to sharing her knowledge with our community, Carrianne co-founded Adweek Rising, a mentorship program focused on supporting the next generation of marketing leaders. They participate in a group program with mentoring sessions, networking opportunities, and access to insights from a global list of CEOs and CMOs.

She is an accomplished keynote speaker, presenting at notable events such as Brandweek, Women’s Achieve Summit, American Marketing Association, and UConn Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

In addition, near and dear to our hearts, Carrianne is a champion for gender equity, serving on the board of directors for the Connecticut Women’s Council and is actively involved with organizations that support economic growth in Connecticut. Service leadership and a helping mindset are the foundation of everything she does, and her mission is to create spaces that foster collaboration and provide opportunities for her clients, team members, and the community.

So join us on 5/23 to learn from Carrianne's expertise. She'll share how to uncover and apply your personal brand to the right places, and how it can help you present your uniqueness to the world.
