When you try to brand your business, you fall into a sea of sameness; you become a differentiating force when you brand yourself.

How to Brand Yourself Like A Leader is a 45- minute presentation about recovering from setbacks and obstacles by leaning into who you are, not what you do. During this presentation, Shaan outlines his journey through the prerequisite principles of success that led to becoming a 7-figure earner at the height of the Global Pandemic.


After graduating from The Game Changers Speaker's Program (ETA), certified by Dr. Eric Thomas (the #1 motivational speaker in the world), Shaan was en route to superstardom in the speaking industry; but life had other plans. 


Like many, Shaan lost years of sweat equity and over $100K in contracted revenue. The speaking opportunities dried up, but Shaan's message of hope and resiliency was as crucial as ever. Shaan successfully took his message to market using various online mediums. His work during this time solidified him as an authoritative voice in personal

branding and leadership development. Not satisfied with just motivating the masses, Shaan used his expertise to create various programs and online communities to support leaders on their journey; Shaan trademarked his evidence-based approach to brand development with a signature program, Branded Like A Leader. 


Shaan condenses the principles of his flagship branding and positioning framework during this presentation. In the first segment, attendees will learn about the success principles and the power of personal branding. Next, Shaan will discuss leveraging leadership, influence, and persuasion for entrepreneurs and professionals.

Lastly, attendees will immediately walk away with actionable steps to launch or improve their personal brands. These steps will position them for greater opportunities, income, and influence as we emerge from the pandemic and enter into the new economy.
