Barker as she provides a warm, supportive atmosphere in which learners are encouraged to intensively explore themselves in order to create a personal brand that authentically and effectively communicates their values and professional gifts.

Interesting and the teacher has certainly very good instincts and great ideas.

However, it would have been beneficial to get more hard data and proven examples to give credibility to the content.

Very basic, no new material or ideas if you've been interested in the subject for a while, but it might give you a fresh perspective on how to present some subjects to your audience.

I didn't find the course very engaging and felt it might have been designed to address a younger audience.

However, some insightful shared articles saved the experience. Thank you.

No me gustó el estilo de la presentación y el contenido ya está desfasado considerando los tiempos actuales. Lo mejor del curso fueron los artículos compartidos en cada sección.

The topic discussed are very broad that everything is discussed. not only personal branding, and that makes me upset because I learned very little about personal branding.

The course was very simplified with basic information.

More quizzes, reading and assignments could help in learning the concept of Personal Branding at a better level.

La verdad es que es un curso bastante flojo en tanto es poco lo que aporta y está filmado con una calidad bastante pobre. Lo mejor es la buena onda de Kimberley.

Not what I expected, It does have useful points but lacks the depth needed or expected of a course in coursera. The lecture style did not suit me.

I didn't find this course particularly helpful and to the point. Some of the material appears outdated, some of the links don't work.

The tone and style adopted by the presenter targeted a specific audience and the presentation relies on fear to sell the product.

Its a good practical lecture but I think it have lots of room to improve. The material itself can be covered in 2 weeks lecture.

Talked too much about outdated knowledge.

But some points are still quite useful, although they are mostly based on common sense
