A great personal brand can help you make better connections, secure more clients, get a better job, get more industry recognition and more. Millennials have brought a different perspective to working life and see themselves very much as a brand; something unique – they’re not asking themselves why companies should hire them, they’re asking: “is this company good enough to attract my brand; why should I work with them?” Here are some top Hey Tuesday tips to get yourself a personal brand that works for you.

I was lucky enough to spend a week in New York City in September for work. Besides running Hey Tuesday, the best place to come to get business headshots that stand out from the crowd, I also set up Hey Saturday, the UK’s first and coolest dating photography business and as a the leader in the dating photography field in the UK and the US, I get to go to some exciting places.
