Personal profile can be one of the most powerful elements in your business armoury, but you have to know what tools and techniques will help you build it, protect it and drive your success. Culturally, many of us are brought up not to "toot our own horns" or "shout about our successes", but in today’s highly competitive world if you don’t stand out, you’re likely to watch those with a higher profile pass you by on their way to the top.
