FAME: The condition of being known or talked about by many people, especially on account of notable achievements. What are you famous for? How do you build fame in business? When Penny Burke talks about Fame it's not in the celebrity context, it's fame within the corporate world for individuals, leaders, companies and brands. What do our people, procedures and brand position project to the world and how are we truly being perceived and talked about? Do we understand how 'fame' directly relates to the engagement or our people and bottom line results in business? A fascinating topic to explore regardless of role and industry.
