Tactful self-promotion is a crucial career and life competency, especially for people in job transition.  Even people who hate the idea of self-promotion must find ways to increase their visibility if they want more job opportunities, recognition and rewards. Whether you’re in transition or not, promoting yourself is not optional.


Tactful self-promotion IS NOT about being a blowhard, stealing the credit or elbowing your way to the center of attention; it IS about cultivating a positive reputation. In this presentation, you’ll learn practical strategies for:

  • Positioning yourself in ways that highlight your value, differentiators and accomplishments, helping you stand out from your competition,

  • Cultivating strategic relationships and expanding your network,

  • Gaining constructive visibility by managing meetings, working a room, and leveraging social media.


Nancy Burke has decades of experience doing career coaching and helping people who are in transition.  She and Richard Dodson have published a book, Power Your Career: The Art of Tactful Self-Promotion at Work, which was awarded a gold medal for the Best Career Book of 2016 by Axiom Business Book Awards.


In her presentation, she will outline actions that even the most reserved can take to increase their visibility without violating their integrity or values (and without triggering a panic attack!).
