● “The decision-making unit for your career is not just who you work for, being able to be seen by the other people beyond your immediate superior is absolutely key.” (12:27-12:38)

● “As long as your name is associated with the positive and the right thing, then that just builds your reputation, and that’s what branding is all about, at the end of the day is reputation. “(13:13-13:21)

● “That’s why you want a personal brand, because you may change your mind if that brand stays with you, no matter what it is, you define it, differentiate it, develop it! (14:52-15:03)

● “Hard work and competing won’t get you success. You need to be visible as well.”(23:36-23:41)
