Self-Promotion Recap

Facilitator: Yared Abera, Global Youth Climate Leader

After introductions or self-promotions, Yared explained to participants how he identifies his brand and selling points. During introductions, Yared promoted himself with the words “global,” “young,” “climate,” and “leader” as his main selling points. He then brought up the experience he had while in Germany for the climate youth meeting to emphasize the point in his life when he made the decision to start promoting.

  • Being proactive, strategic, consistent, and using a professional photo for our social media image is some of the instrument that we need for self–promotion
  • Don’t undermine what you do and your experience
