Business professor to present talk on discovering your personal brand and how to communicate it

Saint Joseph’s College celebrates its 100th Anniversary with the fourth of its Centennial Lecture Series on Tuesday, April 3. Mary Lynn Engel, a member of the business faculty at the college, will give a talk titled “Discover Your Personal Brand and How to Communicate It.”

According to Engel, branding is not only for soaps and beer. “Your personal brand can be about how you act, feel, look and think in a way distinctive only to you,” she notes. “After this presentation, you will better understand yourself, how others perceive you, and ways to bring the two together.”

The talk begins at 7 p.m., and is part of the “Faculty After Hours Centennial Lecture Series” celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Saint Joseph’s College. The series is free and open to the public. All lectures are held at the Viola George Auditorium of Harold Alfond Hall at the Standish campus.

A 30-minute question-and-answer period follows the presentation, and light refreshments will be served. The lecture is sponsored by Bon Appétit, the sustainably oriented food services provider at the college. For more information, call 893-7723.

Saint Joseph’s College began in Portland as a school for young women wanting to become educators. It now offers 40 academic programs at its Standish campus, where it enrolls 1,000 men and women, plus online undergraduate and graduate degrees to working adults nationally and globally. The school added its distance education program in 1976, now called Saint Joseph’s College Online.

“Since 1912, we have emphasized education that combines career focus with classic liberal arts to create a well-rounded graduate,” says Interim President Kenneth Lemanski. “Our Centennial theme, ‘Realize the Promise,’ reflects our commitment to the high level of personal attention we give our students.”
