Nice introduction to this concept that is not very covered where I live, in France. I think this is the first step to build something great, not only in business, but also in al the field in where we are engaged, associatives, personal life. The study materials are very interesting and the teacher is very funny. I learned as much as I laughed in font of my laptop :) Thanks to her to give all these good advices !

Do you wonder why you have more talent when compared to others but are never recognized for it?There are many smart and talented people in the world, yet only a few get the recognition they deserve.
Personal branding is the key to unlock all this.... Thanks to Kimberley R Barker for enriching me with these skills and Coursera too.

Wonderful and informative course. No much focus on peer-review stuffs which usually wastes our time. However, I didn't like the google password security suggestion included in the course as my password got copromised due to their negligence. My instagram got hacked immediately due to google data breach. Google made life so stressed after data breach so I shifted to ddg, Mozilla, tutanota or Ecosia completely.

I really loved this course. The instructor, Kimberley, was engaging and just all around fun. I wanna hang out with her at her favorite building or under her favorite tree and just drink tea and chit chat. She loves what she does, loves helping others, loves to watch you succeed. I suppose I'm assuming all of this but I just feel it to be truth. The course is fun, easy, and you leave feeling like you got this.

This is one of the most refreshing MOOCs I have ever done. Be careful, you are not enrolling for a classic course, where you have people with formal postures standing in front of a green screen and weird slides. You are enrolling for Kimberley R's course. It is her way of teaching. And basically, she is really engaging and decicated to her "learners". Great course! Thanks University of Virginia :)

Loved this course. I myself am engaged in blogging and have a personal brand, but I did not know that it takes so much efforts and behind the scene works apart from the content that I put to engage the audience. This Course definitely gave me more insight on how to keep my audience engaged and how to not loose the main essence of my brand. Thank you so much for the raw and informative lectures.
By Gene G•
Truly inspiring course overall, particularly because a good structure / exercises, such as the Mission Statement and Board of Directors.
One thing I would have loved to hear more about is the importance of LinkedIN rather than Twitter / Facebook. I believe LinkedIN is one of the most important platforms out there and was surprised it not being mentioned.
Regardless, good teaching and narrative!

first I want to thank Coursera for giving the opportunity to people who can't afford this types of courses to have if for free. Personally I did enjoy the course and feel I learned, if it can be better? of course there is always room to keep getting better, maybe update some of the content to what we are living now a days but overall I really liked it and the teacher was not boring at all.

Thank you that you have done this course for us. I might assume that many people around the world find out themself and become the best version of them from everything you and the course gave us.

Thank you very much for this course - by far the best part for me was Week 2 when we were helped to really identify who we are and how we project ourselves to ourselves and to others.
Thank you Kimberley for keeping the videos short and interesting (I find this vital to the success of MOOCs). I do however feel like the Quiz's could have been a little bit more challenging ;)

You will be so bless. Thanks

Very insightlful. This was the first time I spent time on learning about building a personal brand. Have been aware of the concept but never got around to read / search etc about it. These 5 hours of condensed and specific lessons were very helpful. Finished it off in a day. Kimberly has organised the material very well and provides a nice overview re each sub topic.

Thanks a lot mam for the insightful knowledge that you've departed through this course.
By Jonathan J•
I was gonna give 4 stars but now I actually realize I have learnt a lot from this course, all those small tips were very helpful to me and after reviewing I feel more confident by laying out a foundation for my personal brand along with this course, since it was sponsored by my college idk how much it costs but its pretty good. She is quite entertaining as well!

Este curso està muy enfocado yo creo para aquellas personas que tengan curiosidad sobre el personal branding o quieran mejorar su presencia online. Lo que encontraràs es un tinteo de lo que es el personal branding: encontraras algunas herramientas básicas que manejar al principio y te da una comprensio asi por encima de que trata el personal branding.

The course is really good for people to understand it's important to brand themselves first. The course will give people the understanding of the key components needs to build up the reputation and definitely one will have to continue to implement the learning.
As a guide Kimberley has done a great job in keeping the content crisp and to the point.

Kimberley Barker was a great instructor who used a lot of really thought-provoking content. She also engaged with different types of media, such as videos, podcasts, articles as supplemental material for the course. Everything she taught seemed very relevant, and she did a wonderful job of teaching you how to think outside your predisposition.
By Camila P T•
Thank you, Kimberley! I learn a lot from you and this course. I really think this course should be longer to have more videos and lectures to go deeper into each subject. I really love it and it has already helped me a lot during the process to find a job. Thank you so much, Kimberley, you are a totally unique an amazing person and teacher!
By Diana L P G•
Great course and great teacher. I found the articles and lectures really helpful and easy to understand. I believe it gives a really good introduction to Personal Branding and the areas connected to it, I would have liked a bit more deepth in the subjects of the fifth week but the material provieded was good. Definitely a course worth taking.
By Monica d V•
This course was really great! I learned a lot of things, including my personality type. wich made me think a lot deeply of my choices. I finished the course in November 2015 and let me say, I really made use of it! Thanks a lot Kimberly - I still follow you on FB - Thanks Virginia University and Coursera, for sharing so many amazing courses.
By Sandy C•
I really liked the starting point of essentially saying who am I, what are my values, what are my goals - i.e. what is my brand? Working through those questions was very helpful. Practical topics of choosing your SM platforms and so forth provided very useful tools, as well. So a nice balance overall. Thanks so much, Kimberley!
By Mohima A•
It actually tells you a lot about how to use the internet safely and how you can improve from your situation. I totally enjoyed the class and Kimberley R. Barker is totally a boss lady.
