Junior League of Raleigh to kick off fall activities with professional development event

Raleigh | September 22, 2015:

The Junior League of Raleigh kicks off its 2015 year with a free roundtable breakfast on Friday, Sept. 25 at 8 a.m. at the Julia Jones Daniels Center for Community Leadership. The breakfast is open to the public and will focus on the importance of branding. The event is being hosted by the League’s Team Community Connect, a group of volunteers who provide training and leadership opportunities to nonprofit agencies, service organizations and professionals in the Triangle area. This is the first in a series of five breakfast discussions scheduled this year that will provide personal and professional development opportunities for women of Wake County.

In this session, Vitalink founder and marketing expert Jeanne Frazer will teach organizations how to determine if the internal perception of their brand matches that of those outside the organization. Participants will also learn strategies to ensure their brand is presented consistently and ways to create new, deeper connections with donors and clients. Frazer has helped universities, law firms, non-profits and other businesses with branding and marketing since 1996 and focuses on ways to create strategic partnerships with clients that leverage their combined resources, knowledge, creativity and strength to generate results. “We are excited to welcome Jeanne, who is the first in a series of great speakers we’re looking forward to hosting at our breakfast series this year,” said Kathryn Holding, co-captain of Team Community Connect, “We’re excited to provide these hands-on professional development opportunities for the Wake County community and are gearing up for our third annual women’s conference that will focus on job readiness this spring. It’s going to be a great year.”
