Leanne Calderwood, CMP
Personal Branding and LinkedIn Trainer
My career began as a corporate and association meeting planner, but when I took on a new role in site selection, I needed to learn how to sell. I cried during the sales training and role plays. As an extreme introvert, it was awkward and uncomfortable for me! I knew there had to be a better way to connect with my clients and prospects!
I leaned on my love of social media and created a blog to build a “know, like and trust” factor with my ideal clients. I quickly realized that cold calling wasn’t the only way to grow a business, I could do so using my personal brand! I built a robust 6-figure site selection business and created a name for myself in the meetings and events industry using my brand and LinkedIn presence!
I believe owning and amplifying one’s personal brand is the key to setting yourself apart in any industry.
I teach and empower other professionals to use their voice and amplify their own brands and thought leadership to help them attract more leads and opportunities, through my LinkedIn and Personal Branding training.
Step out of the shadows and into the spotlight; I’m here to help!
